Spring 2020 ceremonies

Updated March 17, 2020

With the latest news that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending against holding events of 50 or more people for at least the next two months, the University has decided that it is in the best interest of our campus community to postpone both our Spring Commencement ceremonies May 8-10, and the School of Law Commencement ceremony on May 17.

Alternate dates have not yet been set. More details will be shared as soon as they are known.

Graduates will still have their degrees conferred on May 8-10 and May 17, and paper diplomas will be mailed a short time after.

We know this is an event many have been looking forward to. We are so proud of the graduating Class of 2020 and look forward to celebrating with you later on. 🎉
