Graduation in Dowagiac

We are extremely disappointed to announce that, given the ongoing coronavirus situation, the Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony at Southwestern Michigan College has been canceled. The commencement ceremony at our main campus in Big Rapids has also been canceled.

This should not diminish the accomplishment you feel as a new graduate. We know how hard you worked for this, and we wish it were possible for us to celebrate with you.
