This year’s commencement ceremony will be held virtually at 6 p.m., Friday, June 12.

In this time of social distancing, the Technical College of the Lowcountry looks forward to the live-streaming our commencement ceremony to recognize the achievement of 345 students and to mark this significant milestone in their lives.

The virtual ceremony features TCL alumna and entrepreneur Tylecia Westbrook, who will deliver a special commencement message to graduates. President Dr. Richard Gough and Vice President for Academic & Student Affairs Nancy Weber will present and confer the 345 graduates with 475 associate degrees, certificates and diplomas.

In addition, graduates will be able to share their personalized graduate slide with friends and family and invite all near and far to watch the ceremony.

The virtual commencement is the first step in recognition of the Class of 2020. The College is also committed to recognizing the 2020 graduation class at the Spring 2021 commencement at Waterfront Park in Beaufort.
