Santa Barbara City College, Cal State Channel Islands Plan Online Commencement Ceremonies

Two South Coast colleges have announced plans for online commencement ceremonies.

Santa Barbara City College will hold its virtual ceremony this Friday, May 8. It will include student and faculty speeches, as well as recognition of each graduate.

Students will also be able to connect with each other through social media.

Cal State Channel Islands announced it will honor its Class of 2020 on May 23, with a full online ceremony that will even include musical performances. Graduates will also be able to submit video clips and photos for personal slides used during the web event.

CSUCI officials say their celebration isn’t a replacement for an in-person ceremony. They say they will hold one when safety conditions permit.
