Updated April 3, 2020

There have been many questions and inquiries about Commencement. Our formal Commencement exercises scheduled for May 15 have been cancelled. We are evaluating other safer ways we could allow graduating students to formally celebrate and be recognized for their achievements. Please know, that all students who complete their degree or certificate requirements will still officially graduate at the end of the Spring 2020 term, and their transcripts will be updated to reflect that they have graduated.
