Celebrating Our Graduates

The hearts of CUC’s faculty, staff and administration join you in grief over having to postpone the face-to-face celebrations of your achievements. In this difficult time that tests our patience and resilience, we encourage each of you to learn from your experiences and continue to grow as an individual and child of God.

Plans are currently taken place to celebrate our Class of 2020 and Spring Class of 2021 with an in person ceremony. Details are provided below.

In May of 2020, we held four separate virtual ceremonies to honor and acknowledge the Class of 2021. Videos of these ceremonies can be viewed on demand below.

Please note that degree completion is a separate process from the ceremonial rite of commencement and was not be affected or delayed by the virtual ceremony format.
