Graduation 2023

Graduation 2023 was held Sunday, October 15, 2023.

Congratulations to all our 2023 grads!

Apologies to KeiZhana Owens, whose name was inadvertently left out of the Graduation 2023 printed program booklet. As noted, we’ve issued special reprints of the 2023 booklet for your family and friends.

We hope you enjoyed the celebration of GRADUATION 2023 as much as we did.

See you next fall for the Class of 2024!

This page will be updated with 2024 information, starting Summer 2024.


We are excited to officially announce Midwestern Career College’s graduation ceremony for the class of 2023.

Graduation is an incredibly special time where friends, family, colleagues, and teachers all come together to celebrate the graduates and send them off on their way to a successful career in their field of study.

With diverse backgrounds, cultures, and professional goals, MCC’s graduates don’t fit into just one box. However, some things that they all have in common are hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to their studies. This year’s graduation ceremony is a time to celebrate just that.

We look forward to celebrating all your achievements.
