Faculty & Staff

Faculty Participation at Commencement

Faculty are invited to celebrate the graduates and be celebrated for their role in getting our grads to the finish line!

Faculty are encouraged to attend commencement and will be provided with seating and rental regalia if they do not have their own regalia. Watch your email for information about rental regalia for faculty.

Faculty are also welcome to volunteer for a specific role at commencement (see below).

Volunteering at Commencement

Volunteers are critical to the overall success of the event. If you're a TCC employee and want to help our graduates and their guests enjoy this special day, register to become a commencement volunteer.

Overtime and Flex Time for Volunteers

Non-exempt employees who serve as commencement volunteers will be eligible for compensatory or overtime at 1.5 times your regular hourly rate. Compensatory or overtime will only be paid if you have worked 40 hours in that work week. If any type of leave is used during that week, you will only accrue regular pay/leave, according to policy. See TCC's CDD (LOCAL) Policy for more information on compensation options for non-exempt employees.

Exempt employees are not eligible for compensatory or overtime. However, with supervisor approval, hours worked by exempt employees may be "flexed" after the ceremony.

About Volunteer Registration and Schedules

We will be using the ClearEvent Portal for volunteer registration and to coordinate jobs and schedules. The ClearEvent Portal provides easy access to event information from any mobile or computer device.

If you're a first-time user registering with ClearEvent, you will receive an e-mail from ClearEvent which will contain your ClearEvent account credentials. Keep this e-mail. You will use these credentials to access your ClearEvent account and other necessary information regarding your volunteer role.
