May 2 - Harrisburg, PA
Commencement is a time for our students to celebrate all that they have accomplished during their educational career at Central Penn College. Alumni, students, friends, family members, faculty and staff gather together at The Forum in Harrisburg, Pa. to celebrate accomplishments and look toward the bright future. In 2014, Central Penn will celebrate their graduates on May 2, beginning at 8 p.m.
Central Penn is proud to announce their first ever Commencement Fair, to be held on April 10, 2014. At the Commencement Fair, students will have the opportunity to pick up their caps and gowns, receive Commencement tickets for their family members and enjoy some snacks and refreshments. Additional information about the Commencement Fair will be shared as the date draws closer.
The commencement ceremony is symbolic and ceremonial – your participation should not be confused with your actual graduation from Central Penn College. Students do not officially graduate until all degree requirements have been met as defined in the catalog.
