We are excited to celebrate graduation this year with a Car-mencement! All graduates from summer and fall 2020, as well as candidates for graduation in spring 2021, are invited to participate.

Road to the Future: A Graduation Celebration

Thursday, May 27
10 a.m.
Rain Date: Thursday, June 3

Anne Arundel Community College
101 College Parkway Arnold, MD 21012

We plan to stream the event so fellow students, family and friends can follow along and cheer on the graduates. 

Parade Route

Cars will enter West Campus from Ritchie Highway and be directed into parking lots. When the parade begins, cars will follow a route through main campus lots and along Ring Road, eventually pausing at a grandstand to receive a diploma cover. Faculty and staff will be invited to line the route and cheer you on.


If you would like to purchase regalia now, and even wear your cap and gown in the car parade, visit the AACC Bookstore. If you have any questions about your order, email

What will I receive if I attend the parade?

You will receive your diploma cover as a special gift, a digital photo and memories! For spring 2021 graduation candidates, your diploma will be mailed to you after all requirements have been verified.

How do I sign up?

Look for a graduation gift box in the mail in May. This will include directions on how to RSVP. You may also receive additional communications from a vendor, Full Measure, that will be assisting us with the celebration news.


A photographer will be on hand to document the festivities along with an opportunity to take personal photographs after the parade. You are also welcome to take your own photos on campus on other dates, being mindful to take all props used in your photographs with you when you leave.

Keep checking back for updates!


We're here to help.
