How to prepare for ACC's 2020 Virtual Commencement Celebration 

This commencement is the first of its kind in the history of our college. ACC is tremendously proud of your accomplishments, and we want to help you celebrate them! 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 your photo, your name read aloud and a personal message you will enter.  Your profile will be shareable on social media, where everyone can congratulate you for your hard work and commitment and celebrate the incredible class of 2020!

Your profile will include:

  • Your name
  • Your photo
  • A professional reading of your name, just as it would have been read during an in-person commencement ceremony
  • Your quote or written message of appreciation to your loved ones
  • Your degree(s) and/or certificate(s)  

There are a few steps we need you to take to help us prepare your personal graduation profile.

  • Log into your Marching Order account using the link sent to your ACCMail. (This is a unique login link generated based on your profile.)
    • Submit a message to be featured on your customized profile. You can use this opportunity to share a quote that is meaningful to you or to offer a message of gratitude to your loved ones.
    • Submit a photo of yourself to be featured on your graduation profile.

So that we can have your personal graduation profile prepared in time, we’re asking you to submit your name recording no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 14, 2020 and your photo and personal message no later than 5:00 p.m. on May 24, 2020. Your profile will be visible worldwide immediately following the ACC 2020 Virtual Commencement Celebration hosted by ACC on June 6, 2020. If you have questions about this opportunity, please send them to the ACC graduation office at graduation@austincc.edu
