In light of current gathering restrictions and guidance from the governor’s office, BMCC will not hold its traditional commencement ceremony. However, in order to celebrate our graduates, BMCC will instead hold a "Parade of Graduates" on June 11 at the BMCC Pendleton campus. We will continue to update the Graduation page of our website with details.
