Commencement / Graduation Dates

Mountwest observes one formal Commencement Exercise with three graduation dates during an academic year. The official graduation dates are:

  • Last day of final examinations for the fall semester.
  • Day of Commencement for the spring semester.
  • Last day of the summer term.

Students will not be graduated on any dates other than those noted above. Students who are graduated at the end of the summer term or at the end of the fall term of an academic year are invited and highly encouraged to participate in the Spring Commencement Exercises. A graduation commencement ceremony is held in May for students completing their programs during the academic year. Each year, as the date of graduation commencement ceremony approaches, the College posts all details on the Graduation Commencement Ceremony Web page.

Degrees/diplomas/certificates are conferred by the College President to the graduates of Mountwest Community & Technical College under the authority of the Institutional Board of Governors and the Community & Technical College System of West Virginia.
