College Closes Early at 2:30 p.m.

Because so many of our resources will be directed to the Civic Center for our two Commencement ceremonies, the college will close at 2:30 on Friday, May 10th so we can celebrate our students as an AC family.

Graduation is Friday, May 10 at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum, and AC will conduct two separate ceremonies for the more than 1,000 students eligible to participate in one or the other – based on their Academic Communities.
