When is the commencement ceremony?

Due to the shelter-in-place order issued by the Alameda County Public Health Department, Ohlone has made a decision to host a virtual commencement ceremony.

The ceremony will be broadcast on ONTV, channel 28 (Alameda County), and streamed online. Links are available at the top of this page. 

Do I need a ticket?

No one will need a ticket for the virtual commencement ceremony. 

What can I expect to happen at the ceremony?

The ceremony has been pre-recorded, but everyone in the Ohlone community will be accessing it live at the same time.

The commencement program will include the representatives of the Board of Trustees, the College president, the faculty graduation speaker, and the class valedictorian. The program will also include the conferring of degrees and a roll call to recognize the graduates who responded to the invitation to participate.

A full list of graduates and a digital program will be available on May 22, 2020. 

How can we celebrate during the COVID-19 closure?

Please follow the recommendations of the ACPHD regarding gatherings. 

We recommend planning a party with the members of your household. Take time to make the moment special for your graduate. 

You can also join us on the Ohlone Facebook Live stream to cheer for your graduate during the commencement ceremony on May 22, 2020.

Will there be ADA  Accommodations for the Virtual Commencement Ceremony?

Yes, we will provide captioning for the virtual commencement ceremony.
