Fall 2020 Commencement

  • Necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 delayed our May commencement, but we are pleased to announce that, as promised, a date has been set. The rescheduled commencement ceremony will be December 19, 2020, in Freedom Hall for students who complete degree requirements in Summer and Fall 2019; Spring and Summer 2020; and Fall 2020. The exact ceremony time will be announced later.
  • While we know it’s not what you initially planned, it will be a momentous occasion. We will celebrate your tremendous accomplishments in the face of adversity. You will have your cap and gown, pictures with classmates, and the joyous feeling of a job well done.
  • Students who complete degree requirements at the end of this spring semester will still have an April 30, 2020 degree date posted on their transcripts. We will communicate with you about the availability of your diploma at a later date.
  • The Registrar's Office will reach out in October to ask you to RSVP for the new ceremony. In the coming months, we'll release additional information as our plans are solidified.
