More Information

On April 16, Chancellor May announced that spring 2021 graduates — undergraduate and academic graduate students — will have the opportunity to participate in a limited-scale, in-person commencement processional. Due to the size limitations of gatherings, each event will be limited to 300 students. Unfortunately, these size restrictions mean we are unable to welcome the Class of 2020 back to participate in this ceremony. These difficult decisions have been made in consultation with public health experts. A more traditional celebration for 2020 graduates will take place as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
