Celebrate your Achievement!
Location and Time
Kitsap Sun Arena, Kitsap Fairgrounds. Friday, 6:00 PM, June 16, 2017
Around the third week of May eligible graduates for the current academic year will be formally invited to take part in the commencement ceremony. The eligible student must RSVP by the posted deadline to take part in the ceremony. There are no admission tickets.
We recommend early arrival (60 minutes). Even earlier if you have a large family or family members with special needs. Traffic and parking will take longer than you would expect!
Student gowns are available in the Bremerton store from mid May until the day of the ceremony in June. Souvenir tassels are available all year, but supplies are limited. Diploma covers are available any time.
Online ordering is now closed for 2017 caps and gowns.
What To Wear
OC Bookstore has student regalia (cap & gown) available for purchase in the Bremerton store. The cost is about $25.00. We will have a full range of sizes and no pre-order is necessary. Tip: if your size is bigger or smaller than average, you may want to come in early.
What to wear under the gown? Most people dress fairly formally. It is a big occasion, especially for those who paid your way! We try to balance enjoying the moment with respect for the diversity of the audience.
Commemorate your accomplishment with a diploma frame from the company that does them all.
