Los Angeles Harbor College, will hold an online Virtual Recognition Ceremony instead of an in-person commencement (graduation) due to public orders requiring social distancing, and prohibiting large public gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Each Ceremony will be approximately two and a half hours long, depending on the number of graduates for the college.
