Winter Commencement Ceremony


You and your family are invited to attend a Virtual Commencement Ceremony for the winter 2020 graduates of Fox Valley Technical College! The ceremony will take place on Friday, December 18th at 5 p.m. In addition, you will be invited to attend a future in-person ceremony should that opportunity be available.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing us from celebrating our Winter 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.
