Satellite Locations

The Spring 2021 Commencement Ceremonies will be broadcast on the College of Charleston Facebook page and live at Recordings including all virtual participant details will be posted to this website.


Watch the 2021 Ceremonies Live on CofC Facebook and HERE

The ceremonies will be live-streamed, and approximately three weeks later, the ceremony videos will be available on the commencement website. Please note that the satellite locations outlined below are exactly the same experience as from the comfort of any other location with a device with internet connectivity.  The venues are in open spaces with very little shade so please dress accordingly and wear sunscreen.

In an effort to accommodate graduates’ guests to be near Cistern Yard, Rivers Green, Stern Garden and the School of Sciences and Mathematics Building’s Courtyard will be set up as live-streaming satellite locations. Guests with tickets will be accommodated at these satellite locations on a first-come/first-served basis. Once the capacity of a venue is reached, guests will be directed to another site. Some chairs will be available, and guests are welcome to bring a blanket (no folding chairs) for the ground. There will be limited indoor seating for those who need relief from the heat. All sites open an hour and a half before each ceremony.

Bathroom access for satellite locations is as follows:
Stern Gardens: First floor of Stern Center
Rivers Green: First floor of the Addlestone Library
SSMB Courtyard: First floor of SSMB

Rest assured that no matter which ceremony you attend, your health and well-being and that of your guests, remain our number-one priority.
