Commencement Ceremony


You and your family are invited to attend a Virtual Commencement Ceremony for the spring 2021 graduates of Fox Valley Technical College! The ceremony will take place on Friday, May 21st at 5 p.m.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing us from celebrating our commencement ceremony in person, you have so much to be proud of and we want to celebrate your accomplishments. We know that this is not how you envisioned celebrating your college graduation. However, we intend to make this virtual event as special as possible for you.

We are so proud of all of our graduates—for your resilience, your dedication and your spirit. A graduation ceremony marks the end of a journey, but it’s also a beginning. Let’s celebrate that together.

Date: Friday, May 21, 2021
Time of Ceremony: 5 p.m.
Hashtag: Participate and follow along on social media using #FVTCgrad
