Based on the state and federal guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, we have made the difficult decision to move the 2020 Commencement activities to a virtual format. Your achievements and hard work are essential to us and deserve to be celebrated!

Although, at this time, we are not able to celebrate our ceremony in person, we would like to give each graduate the opportunity to celebrate all that they have accomplished during their time at Yuba College. As such, we are planning an online celebration of 2020 Graduates so that they can remotely share this moment with their family, friends, and the academic community.

This year we are hosting our Virtual Commencement on May 15th, 2020 @ 7:00 pm, while still trying to maintain the important traditions of Yuba College.
