Graduation Commencement Ceremony

Graduation is currently scheduled for May 14, 2021, and we anticipate holding a ceremony on campus. Details will follow in Spring semester.

Wallace State has partnered with Barnes & Noble bookstore on campus for students to purchase their graduation regalia. A link for orders will be posted here when available. 

For those who do plan to participate in the graduation ceremony, we have also updated our graduation fees, as follows: 

  • $20.00 to participate in the graduation ceremony. You will receive one diploma cover at the ceremony, and your diploma will be mailed. If you have indicated on your graduation application that you plan to participate in the graduation ceremony in May, this $20.00 participation fee will be added to your student account.
  • $25.98 for cap/gown/tassel - to be ordered from Barnes & Noble
  • $15.98 for the Associate hood to be ordered from Barnes & Noble (order if you are receiving an Associate Degree)

If you do not wish to participate in the ceremony, you may have your diploma or certificate mailed for $5.00. If you do not participate in the ceremony and want to purchase a diploma cover, you may contact the Cashier's Office at 256-352-8141. Diploma covers are $10.00 each. 

You will receive an email from Mrs. Belinda Calvert once fees have been applied to your account. If you have any questions or want to make changes to your graduation application, please Mrs. Calvert via email at: belinda.calvert@wallacestate.edu.
