Alumni and Support

Welcome back, Alumni! 

Spring 2018 commencement

Alumni are not only an important part of our past, but an important part of our future. Keeping in touch with our alumni is important to us! This page serves as a resource to keep you up to date with all of the exciting news happening here.

Since 1882 our alumni base exceeds 7000 distinguished alumni. CCMS alumni have gone on to do exceptional things and served countless communities and families across the nation. As a distinguished alumnus/alumna of CCMS, there are many ways for you to support your alma mater to leave your mark on the future of funeral service education.

We invite you to continue support of tomorrow’s funeral service professionals through mentorship, contribution of goods/services to academic or clinical programs, and much more. The tradition of alumni giving back to CCMS has helped build a tradition of excellence and further strengthened both the school and the students who will one day become your colleagues.

Throughout this page you will find helpful links relating to alumni services, continuing education, training and certifications, and career resources. We invite you to browse these resources, as well as keep in touch with us. It is a privilege to share in the pride of our distinguished graduates and their successes.
