Ceremony Details
Keystone College will premiere its virtual 149th Commencement ceremony beginning at 11 a.m. on this page. Graduates, parents, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends are welcome and encouraged to join together virtually in recognizing this year’s graduating class.

The pre-recorded ceremony will include most of the College’s Commencement traditions including commemorating remarks from Keystone College President Tracy L. Brundage, Ph.D., a message from the Outstanding Graduate, musical selections by Keystone’s Department of Performance Music, and the announcement of each graduate. The keynote address will be given by Keystone alumnus Dan Gager ’91.

Graduating Regalia
Many graduates have already ordered and received their regalia through Josten’s. Graduates who provided regalia information in April will receive it as soon as possible; however, delivery may be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please keep the regalia as a souvenir of your accomplishment or for virtual parties! If you plan on attending the in-person celebration in the fall, it is advised to keep your regalia for that event.

Commencement Programs
The program will be posted to the College’s Commencement web page closer to the date of the virtual ceremony. Each graduate will also receive two copies of the program in the mail in mid-May.

Diplomas will be mailed to the student’s home address in mid-May.

Digital Slides
The virtual ceremony has many of the same components as the College’s traditional ceremony. Instead of walking across the stage to accept your diploma, the College is working with a vendor, GradImages, to create a slide with your photo, degree, academic honors, and awards that will be featured during the ceremony. GradImages will email graduates directly at their Keystone email address requesting information. Graduates are encouraged to respond and provide appropriate details in a timely matter.

In-Person Celebration
The College hopes to host an in-person celebration this fall during Homecoming Weekend (October 9-11, 2020), if it is safe given the COVID-19 pandemic. As decisions are made and details are finalized, information will be sent to the Class of 2020.
