Graduation is a big deal. Let's celebrate!
Join us for the HCC Spring 2023 Commencement Ceremony!
All students who have completed a degree or certificate during the 2022-2023 academic year are invited to participate in the spring Commencement ceremony. After completeing your application for graduation, you will be asked to confirm your attendance in your student center.
We will be hosting our commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 19th at the Grossinger Motors Arena in Downtown Bloomington. Commencement will begin promptly at 6:30pm.
Graduates will be allowed to invite friends and family to this milestone.
As always, the safety and health of our students is our top priority. We will be continually assessing the current situation and guidelines. If there would be any changes in our event planning, we will keep you updated.

Receiving Your Diploma
A few things to keep in mind:
- Participation in the commencement ceremony does not automatically ensure you have earned a degree, certificate or diploma.
- Graduation audits are completed as soon as possible following the ceremony for spring and summer candidates.
- Diplomas will be mailed to you approximately 3-5 weeks after all final grades are posted and all financial obligations have been met.
