Dear BCC Graduate,
Congratulations! We are excited that you have reached this important milestone here at Berkeley City College. In recognition of this, we would like to extend a special invitation to you and your loved ones to join in the celebration. Below are the two events that we will be hosting in honor of your achievement.
BCC Virtual Commencement – Thursday, May 26th at 6:00 pm
This year, Berkeley City College’s Commencement 2022 will be hosted live, virtually on Thursday, May 26th beginning at 6:00 p.m. The event will be hosted on Peralta Community College District’s YouTube Channel. Please join us as we gather to commemorate this special recognition.
BCC Post-Commencement Celebration – Friday, May 27th at 3:00 pm
In addition to the Commencement, please join us for a very special Post-Commencement Celebration on Friday, May 27th from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at Merritt College (Parking Lot “C”, 12500 Campus Dr, Oakland, CA 94619). Please come ready to enjoy! We will have music, food, photo opportunities and other giveaways. We will also be providing graduates with their tassels, diploma covers and other memorabilia. For this event, please plan on attending in your graduation attire for photo opportunities, including photos with the Chancellor, College President Angélica Garcia and others from 4:00 to 4:30 pm. You are welcome to bring two guests with you and food will be provided free to all graduates. Please RSVP to this event by Wednesday, April 27th to indicate that you will be there.
If you would like to purchase a cap and gown, you may order online through the BCC’s Bookstore and pick it up on campus. Each graduate will be receiving a free tassel and zipper pull during the celebration so you may opt out of purchasing the tassel and zipper pulls.
As we get closer to the date, we will be sure to send any updates so please continue to check your email. Please also visit us at BCC’s Graduation website.
