Commencement (May 15-17)

Not Currently Affected

Nothing is more important to the University than the commencement ceremonies where we celebrate and honor our graduates. At this time, the University is planning to hold commencement.

However, the public health situation is evolving daily. If circumstances change to where it would be a public health risk to hold commencement, the University will communicate that change immediately.

We advise parents and students to monitor University communications, delay making travel purchases (if possible) and pursue travel insurance options.
