Celebrate your Achievement!
Location and Time
Kitsap Sun Arena, Kitsap Fairgrounds. Sunday, 2:00 PM, June 19, 2016
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 can take longer than you would expect!
Student gowns are available in store from mid May until the Friday before the ceremony in June. Souvenir tassels are available all year, but supplies are limited.
Online ordering is open now for souvenir products, including diploma covers.
What To Wear
OC Bookstore has student regalia (cap & gown) available for purchase in all three stores. The cost is about $35.00. 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.
Diploma Frames and Rings
Commemorate your accomplishment with a class ring and diploma frame from the company that does them all.
