2021 Commencement

Muskegon Community College hosted a Drive-Through Commencement Ceremony on the main campus on Wednesday, May 5, 2021. With restrictions in place to contain the coronavirus, this event provided our deserving graduates with a fun send-off filled with pomp and circumstance. Last year’s 2020 MCC graduates were also be invited to participate in the event.

In addition to the drive-through event, a 2021 Commencement Video will also be published on YouTube, MCC’s social media page, and this webpage in late May 2021.
