Congratulations Pierce College at JBLM Graduates!

We are excited to share with you information about the upcoming Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) Combined Military Graduation Ceremony.  

Date and Time

Friday May 31, 2024 at 1 p.m.


This year’s ceremony will be held at Saint Martin's University in Lacey, WA (Google Maps). Please plan to arrive no later than 12:45. Due to space limitations we ask that each graduate only brings three guests. Those guests who are unable to make the ceremony are invited to attend the ceremony via Facebook Live. 

What’s Next?

Please RSVP to graduation by March 31 to ensure your name is in the program.  No need to worry about what to wear, we will provide the regalia at no cost to you.
