Commencement is all about celebrating hard work and dedication. Bismarck State College is proud to honor student achievement with graduates and their families. The 2021 BSC Commencement Ceremony will be held virtually. Commencement will be livestreamed at and a Facebook Watch Party will be held at the same time on the BSC Facebook page allowing students, family and friends to watch together and share congratulatory messages for BSC graduates. The 2021 BSC Commencement Commemorative Booklet is available online. We hope you will join us.

Due to the complex logistics in planning required for commencement, BSC had to make the decision early in the Spring semester on how best to proceed with the ceremony. Following the COVID-19 Risk Level event guidelines in place at the time the commencement format decision had to be made, it was determined that the 2021 BSC Commencement ceremony would be held as a virtual event.
