The virtual celebration will include special videos and messages to our graduates, their families and friends, and the Austin Community.

As a key part of this year’s virtual celebration, ACC will provide every candidate with a personal graduation profile to celebrate their accomplishments. Your graduation profile can be customized with a photo,  personal message, and your name read aloud just as it would be read during an in-person commencement ceremony. Your profile will be available to share on social media so others may congratulate you for your hard work and commitment and celebrate the Class of 2020!
