Update: Spring Commencement Postponed
Spring Commencement, currently scheduled for May 17, 2020, will be postponed due to
the COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions on public gatherings. There are
plans for a late summer or early fall commencement as soon as public health conditions
and operational guidelines allow. Delaying the commencement ceremonies will not delay
the actual awarding of degrees to May graduates.
