2017 Commencement

On June 9, with friends, family, board members, volunteers, supporters and staff in attendance, 14 students celebrated completion of their Associate of Arts Degree—transferrable to any college or university—after completing 20 classes in the humanities, social sciences, math, and science.

Valedictorian Address

Angelo F. offered remarks at the ceremony, saying "Ladies and Gentlemen, today is no ordinary day. Today is a dream come true. Earning a degree brings me the greatest satisfaction and greatest joy."

Please note: Previous to September 2020, Mount Tamalpais College operated at San Quentin State Prison as the Prison University Project and students received their degrees from our accredited university partner, Patten University.
