Frequently asked questions

When is the ceremony?
ACC holds commencement ceremonies in May and December. There is no fee for graduation, but students must purchase a cap and gown for the ceremony.

Where can I purchase a cap and gown?
The ACC Bookstore sells graduation caps, gowns, and invitations. See the commencement webpage for important details. HSE students need a black tassel for the cap. ACC encourages graduates who do not wish to keep their regalia to donate it back to the college -- it's the "green" thing to do!  Donated regalia is made available to future graduates who would not otherwise be able to attend graduation.
