Each graduate will be given six (6) tickets for the commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 10th. Because of space restrictions, no guest will be permitted to attend the ceremony without a ticket. Additional tickets will be available for purchase. Additional tickets will cost $10.00 each. There are no restrictions on the number of tickets purchased. Children five years and under do not need a ticket. Please visit http://www.tkc.edu/epay/ to purchase extra tickets.

Current students can purchase tickets for $5.00, one ticket per TKC student ID.

All tickets will be available for pick-up at the Student Services desk from Monday, April 29th, to Thursday, May 8th.

All academic honors are based on the student’s cumulative grade point average at the end of the Fall 2013 semester because Spring semester grades are not ready in time for the May ceremony. The official transcript will reflect the actual honors earned in the Spring 2014 semester.

Graduates will receive their official diploma after the Commencement Ceremony by mail. The Registrar’s Office will collect each graduate’s forwarding address to ensure they receive their diploma.

A photo of each graduate will be taken upon receiving his or her diploma. A group photo of the Class of 2014 will be taken post-ceremony.
