2024 Graduation & Commencement Ceremony

Information for SMCC Graduates and Guests

Southern Maine Community College will celebrate its seventy-seventh commencement on Sunday, May 19, 2024, at 2:00 pm. The ceremony will be held at the Cross Insurance Arena (formerly Cumberland County Civic Center) at 45 Spring Street in Portland.  Doors open to students at 12pm.  Allow extra time for entry as the Cross Arena does search bags and persons entering the arena.

There will be an interpreter for the hearing impaired at the ceremony.  Cross Insurance Arena has clearly marked seating available to accommodate guests with disabilities. Should you or your guest require such seating, we recommend that you arrive at 12:00p.m. as guest seating cannot be reserved.  If a graduate requires other accommodations for themselves during the ceremony, please contact the Office of Student Life at 741-5967 or email deanofstudents@smccme.edu.
