Please join us for the Graduation Ceremony!!!
The HCC Opticianry Program is proud of its student’s accomplishments. We encourage ALL HCC Opticianry students to participate in the Graduation Ceremony. HCC schedules the Graduation Ceremony one time per year in the SPRING Semester.
The 2015 HCC Graduation Ceremony is scheduled for Friday May 1st 10:00AM at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall. Opticianry Program Students are gathered into the same general area before the event so that they may all “walk” together. Your HCC Opticianry Instructors make every effort to meet with you before the ceremony begins.
Please follow the instructions below to be prepared for the Graduation Ceremony:
ALL STUDENTS: All 2nd Year Students were to Apply for Degree last November. "Apply for Degree" and "Apply to Graduate" are the same thing. By doing so your name was added to the Graduating Student List in the event program.
(**NOTE: You may still walk if you did not apply to graduate. Your name will not appear in the commencement program.)
Please make arrangements to attend the appropriate Final Exam Session, NCLE Review and arrange accommodations to stay in Tampa for the Friday 2:00pm ceremony. We hope to see you all there!
