One of the best parts about earning an academic credential is showing it off at graduation. Coastal Pines Technical College hosts three commencement ceremonies every year. The Registrar’s Office has the honor of coordinating the conferring of degrees, diplomas, and technical certificates of credit to the graduates of Coastal Pines Technical College.
