2020 and 2021 Commencement Ceremonies

As many of you know, we made the difficult decision last year to postpone our spring and then our fall in-person commencement ceremonies because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that commencement is an incredible accomplishment and the highlight of each semester, but we had to make decisions based on keeping everyone safe. We then offered a virtual commencement ceremony in May 2021.

We are pleased to inform you that we will be hosting two days of in-person commencement ceremonies for all 2020 and spring and summer 2021 graduates. We look forward to having these ceremonies and celebrating with each of you. Below is more information on the upcoming in-person commencement ceremonies.
