Although students may graduate three times during the school year-fall, summer, and spring-UA Rich Mountain holds only one commencement ceremony annually.  The May commencement is an important tradition at UA Rich Mountain because it allows the college community an opportunity to celebrate with the graduates and their families and to recognize publicly those graduates who have achieved a goal that not all adults achieve-a college degree.  Therefore, participation in commencement is expected of all graduates.  Those who face circumstances that will not allow them to attend commencement should notify the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs.
