MIAMI, – In a signing ceremony held today at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus, the University of Miami and Miami Dade College (MDC) formally executed an articulation agreement that serves to provide guidelines and assist students in the transferability of coursework from MDC to majors within the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Miami (UM). 

With high hopes for bright personal and professional futures, more than 13,000 graduates from Miami Dade College’s eight campuses will make the momentous walk across the stage with diplomas and credentials in hand at five commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 4. MDC’s President Dr. Eduardo J. Padrón will preside over his final commencement before stepping down as president in August, after 50 years at the College, nearly 25 as president. 

As part of a unique partnership, students enrolled in certain aviation courses offered by MDC will receive supplemental training provided by Pan Am International Flight Academy, including the establishment of a Pan Am Career Pilot Academy at Miami Executive Airport to conduct a professional flight training program for MDC students.  Qualified students may also pursue job opportunities to become flight instructors for the Pan Am Career Pilot Academy while they complete their degree program at MDC. Pan Am will also offer additional training courses at other Pan Am facilities, that seek to provide a greater value to students’ career paths. 

MIAMI – FIU will hold 10 commencement ceremonies from April 28, 2019 – May 1, 2019 to celebrate the achievements of more than 5,000 students who are earning degrees this spring. For the first time ever, FIU is recognizing nine Worlds Ahead female graduates in engineering that are at the cutting edge of their fields.
