Graduation Celebration

Ventura College 2021 Graduation Celebration

Due to COVID-19, The Ventura County Community College District and Ventura College faculty, staff, and administration would like to honor our Graduates by inviting them to take part in the following opportunities to celebrate their accomplishments through our Ventura College Commencement Webpage – Virtual Yearbook (coming soon!) and "Grad Drive-Thru" event and pick up your commemorative lawn sign and 2021 tassel on Thursday, May 20, 2021! 

Students at Graduation Drive-Thru Event
Graduation Celebration Drive-Thru Event at Main Campus:
Graduates are invited to a “drive-thru” event on the main campus on Thursday, May 20, 2021 from 9 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to pick up a free commemorative lawn sign, a 2021 tassel, and other commemorative items. Quantities are limited, as we purchased the same number of signs/tassels as the number of graduates we usually see participate in our annual on-ground ceremony. Items will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis. The pick-up location will be in the East Parking Lot. You may only enter at the driveway off Day Road. View the Ventura College Campus Map Online. There are many departments participating in the drive-thru celebration; you should receive additional information directly from those groups.
NOTE: This is a drive-thru event. Please remain in your car as we practice safe, social distancing. Thank you!
To help avoid long wait times, we ask that you arrive at the time indicated below based on your last name:
9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.: Last names beginning with A through D
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.: Last names beginning with E through L
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: Last names beginning with M through Q

Photo Opportunity:
Ventura College is partnering with Grad Images! Graduates will have the opportunity to have their picture taken in the West Parking Lot. As this is a drive-thru event, only the graduate may leave their car for the photograph.
NOTE: The only entrance open for this event is the driveway off Day Road by East Parking Lot.

Drive-Thru Event at Ventura College East Campus:
Ventura College East Campus is also holding a drive-thru graduation event on Thursday, May 20, 2021, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. That event will include all of the graduation giveaways mentioned above as well as a photo opportunity. View the Ventura College East Campus Map (available soon).
Students at Graduation Drive-Thru Event
Graduates are invited to fill out an online questionnaire and upload a photo of themselves to be featured on the Ventura College Commencement webpage. Each student will have a unique link to their graduation profile, which they can share with family and friends. The site will also feature graduation speeches from Ventura College President, Dr. Kim Hoffmans, and Associated Students President, Carlo Plascencia, among other distinguished speakers. Students have until the end of Sunday, April 18, 2021, to submit their information online to be included on the Ventura College Commencement page.  Graduates will be notified when they are able to submit their profiles.
