Commencement is a dignified occasion honoring important educational accomplishments. Decorum and courtesy are important to you and your family, and to your fellow graduates and their families.

August and December graduates of the previous year and students who are classified as Pending for spring are eligible to participate in the commencement ceremony. Students may view their graduation status through My JSCC Pipeline on their transcript. Students graduating the following summer term will not be permitted to participate in the ceremony.

Join us as we celebrate and recognize the academic achievements of our graduates. The information found here will assist you and your guests as you make plans to participate in our Commencement Ceremony. We look forward to celebrating with you!

Commencement Ceremony Attendance Registration

Graduates participating in the Commencement Ceremony must complete the Graduation Ceremony Registration survey on my JSCC Pipeline/Online Services/Personal Information/Answer a Survey/Register for the May 8, 2015 Graduation Ceremony. Completion of the Graduation Ceremony Registration is required if participation in the ceremony is to occur. This year, seating is limited to 5 (five) guests per graduate and in the survey, graduates will be able to indicate how many tickets they will be issued.

Graduates must register by Wednesday, April 17, 2015.

Because seating is limited at the Alabama Theater, each graduate who pre-registers for the ceremony by April 3, 2015 will be issued up to 5 tickets. Depending on the registration, the number of allotted tickets may be lowered at a later time for those who register after April 3, 2015.

Graduates wanting their name to appear in the Graduation Program must be approved for May graduation prior to April 17, 2015
