grads and caps and gowns

Commencement 2021

The College President, Board of Trustees, and employees of Harford Community College invite you to participate in our annual  Commencement ceremony which occurs each May.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony will be held virtually for everyone to watch on Thursday, May 27, 2021. Prior to the ceremony date, we are offering graduates the opportunity to walk across the stage in the APGFCU Arena and receive their scroll from Dr. Felder. Each graduate will be allowed four guests to join them in the celebration and footage will be included in the virtual ceremony.



Graduates have two options to participate in Commencement 2021.

OPTION 1  |  Graduates may sign up to cross the stage at an assigned time May 3–6. Graduates who choose to walk will be allowed to have 4 guests join them as they celebrate their accomplishments. All attendees will maintain social distanced while walking through various stations of celebration. Information on how and when to schedule walk times will be available soon.

Photography and footage from the scheduled stage crossings will be included in the virtual commencement ceremony that will debut online Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 6 PM.

OPTION 2  |  Graduates who do not wish to walk may submit a photograph wearing your cap and gown. The photo must be received prior to May 7 to be included in the pre-produced virtual commencement ceremony.


Those wishing to participate in either of the options above should reserve a cap and gown when they RSVP.
