Spring 2020 Virtual Graduation

We are excited to announce 2020 Spring Graduation is going VIRTUAL! 

Although not an ideal situation, Madison College is still committed to celebrating your success! 

Based on the graduation survey sent in early April, the majority of you preferred a website instead of a “live” virtual ceremony.  We are excited to give you exactly that but the site will only be successful if  you participate. 

Here is what is needed: 

Each graduate will have their own slide (see example) where you can upload a photo and write any messages of future plans or messages of appreciation.  You will also be asked to write your name phonetically.  In order to do this,

  1. Go to your email account and search for an email from studentlife@madisoncollege that will include the link to register for the site and set up an account.  You will use your madisoncollege.edu email address and create a password.  Then simply follow the prompts. The deadline to have your photo included in the site is Thursday, May 7, 2020.

Secondly, also in the survey, you stated that the most important items you receive for graduation are the cap, tassel and diploma cover.  In order to receive those, do the following;

  1. Go to this link to order a cap and tassel to be shipped to your home free of charge.  If you would like the full package that includes a gown, you will need to pay the $15.95 shipping fee.  Shipping is taking longer than in the past so please plan accordingly and order early.
  2. Once the campus opens up, diploma covers and honor cords will be available for pick up.

Lastly, MARK YOUR CALENDAR and invite family and friends to comment on your slide and join Student Life as we celebrate YOU!  On Thursday, May 21, 2020 the web site will go live and between the hours of 4:30-6:30 p.m. using Webex, we will be hosting a number of special activities throughout the evening to virtually celebrate your accomplishments.  More information on the schedule of activities will be sent to your email soon and posted on social media.  Check out the special countdown to graduation on Instagram and start posting your photos at #mcgrads. 

If you have any questions or technology issues, please email studentlife@madisoncollege.edu.

Please note:  The graduation fee of $20 will be WAIVED for spring 2020. No payment is necessary and for professional photos please contact Empire Photography for details.
