The Fresno City College Commencement Exercises are held every May to recognize those students who have earned an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree. Approximately 500 students participate each year. Every graduate has his or her name called during the ceremony and is invited to walk across the stage.
The College President presides over the ceremony which is attended by a delegation of faculty and administrators. The grandeur and majesty of FCC's Commencement Ceremony is unmatched by any other college in the area.
