UACCM Announces Spring Commencement Plans

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton will host in-person commencement ceremonies at Morrilton High School’s Devil Dog Arena in May to celebrate its spring 2021 and all 2020 graduates.

The spring commencement exercises will mark the first time UACCM has hosted in-person ceremonies since December 2019, as all 2020 ceremonies were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The in-person commencement ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 15, at 10:00 a.m. The facility’s size enables the college to accommodate the graduates and their guests. Exact details about event protocols and public health precautions will be announced closer to the ceremony date.

The commencement is a moment of celebration and reunion, as UACCM welcomes back graduates from the spring and fall 2020 semesters. Because of the pandemic, UACCM conferred degrees and certificates in virtual ceremonies last May and December, with the expectation that the college would invite them to participate in a future in-person ceremony. 2020 graduates who notified the UACCM Registrar’s Office that they intended to walk at an in-person graduation should have received a text message with event details. Those who did not receive a text message but wish to attend the ceremony should contact the Registrar’s Office as soon as possible. 

A rehearsal will take place on Friday, May 14, at 4:00 p.m. at Devil Dog Arena.

Spring 2021 and all 2020 graduates are also invited to attend the Grad Fair, a one-stop event to pick up caps and gowns, meet with transfer representatives from across the state, and more. The college has adjusted this year’s fair to accommodate students’ busy schedules by offering two time slots, including in the evening. The Grad Fair will take place at the Workforce Training Center, Thursday, March 18, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
