As a way to ensure that our 25th Graduating Class does not go unrecognized, Penn Highlands Community College will be offering a virtual Commencement honoring the achievements and accomplishments of our graduates. Our virtual Commencement Ceremony program is available, click here to view and download.

Join us on Friday, May 15th, at 7:00pm, as we celebrate with over 350 graduates, their families, and their friends in an online gathering that has never before been seen in the College’s history. This unique celebration will be hosted on this webpage, on our Facebook page, and on our YouTube channel.

  • Virtual Commencement Program

    For our graduates and their families and friends, we have created a virtual Commencement Ceremony program detailing the event and listing all of the graduates with their respective degrees and honors.

  • Regalia and Diploma Distribution

    To best serve and honor our graduates, Penn Highlands is hosting drive-thru sessions at all college locations this week. Graduates will have the opportunity to pick up their honor chords, regalia, diplomas, transcripts, and a congratulatory yard sign. They will simply need to drive to the front of their respective facility and show their ID to a staff member. The items will then be placed in their trunk or back seat. Graduates are not permitted to leave their vehicles, as this is a drive-thru service.

    Distribution Dates and Times:

    Richland Campus and Ebensburg Center

    • Wednesday, May, 13th: 10am to 12pm, 2pm to 4pm
    • Thursday, May 14th: 10am to 12pm, 6pm to 8pm

Penn Highlands is still committed to honoring these graduates with an in-person ceremony when circumstances permit we are able to do so, but the College community is determined not to let this graduating class go unrecognized.
