Commencement Dates and Schedules
Fall 2020 – December 18, 2020 (Virtual Celebration and Ceremony)
Spring 2021 – May 14-16, 2021
Spring 2021 Celebrations: The university will hold Spring break April 12 – 16, 2021, and all course instruction and exams following that time will be delivered remotely. The timing of final exams will remain unchanged and are scheduled for the week of May 10-14.
The university is examining options for Spring commencement ceremonies. Compliance with physical distancing guidelines means that in-person experiences will not be an exact replication of past in-person ceremonies. The Offices of the President and Provost are working with dozens of departments on campus, in addition to the Pandemic Preparedness Team, to provide a meaningful experience for the students. Please check the commencement website for the most updated information.
