Georgia Gwinnett College to hold commencement ceremony online August 8

Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) will celebrate commencement online at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 8. More than 800 spring and summer 2020 students will be honored during the virtual ceremony. 

“The coronavirus has disrupted life for everyone,” said Dr. Jann L. Joseph, GGC president. “I’m so proud of you all for not letting it stop you from completing your degrees, and it will not keep us from providing a memorable experience for you and your loved ones, as we celebrate you ... the unstoppable class of 2020.”

As a special keepsake, the college will mail each graduate a celebratory commencement box that contains their diplomas, honor cords and other items.

For those who wish to participate at an in-person commencement, officials said that spring and summer 2020 graduates will be invited to walk in the December ceremony, if it is safe to hold an in-person ceremony at that time.
