Milledgeville Graduation Information

GMC is dedicated to celebrating your accomplishments in person with smaller, socially distant ceremonies this spring. We will host two graduation ceremonies on Friday, May 21st at 10am and 2pm at the GMC Activity Center.

Students with the last name A-I will attend the 10am ceremony while students with the last name J-Z will attend the 2pm ceremony.

These smaller ceremonies allow us to provide distance between graduate seating and guest seating as well as a thorough cleaning and sanitation of the Activity Center between ceremonies.

Similarly, we will host graduation rehearsals on Thursday, May 20th at 10am and 2pm. This rehearsal will also take place at the GMC Activity Center. While participation in these graduation ceremonies is entirely voluntary, if you plan to participate, we strongly encourage you to attend rehearsal.
