Commencement Day Traffic Announcement, Rocklin

In an effort to assist in getting you and your families out of the parking lots, Sierra College Security and the Rocklin Police Department will be directing both pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Both campus exits will take you to I-80 east or west; please follow the signs and the directions of the Officers at those intersections. Drive safe!

The commencement ceremonies are an appropriate conclusion to a successful academic career at Sierra College. The educational success that the award of an Associate degree represents demonstrates considerable sacrifice, hard work and commitment.

The ceremony itself takes place once a year at the end of the Spring semester. All students who complete a degree in either Fall, Spring or Summer of that academic year are eligible to attend. You must have submitted a degree petition to the Admissions & Records Office by the appropriate deadline. Participation in commencement does not guarantee a degree. During March you will receive information about the ceremony and must complete an additional participation form if you wish to attend. The College bookstore will have caps, gowns and tassels available for purchase.

There is not a limit to the number of guests that you can invite to the outdoor ceremony, but if it rains heavily the ceremony will be canceled and not rescheduled (at the Rocklin Campus).

Additional information for Rocklin Campus.

For further information please contact or (916) 660-7430.
