Tentative Commencement Date Announced:

The commencement committee is pleased to announce a plan to celebrate the accomplishments of the class of 2020. The commencement ceremony is tentatively planned for the weekend of December 18/19 in the Levine Center for Wellness and Recreation. If health conditions are unsafe or if government regulations at the time do not permit a gathering of this type, the alternative date will be May 1, 2021. Stay tuned for additional details.


additional information

  • Students who will complete their degree requirements at the end of the Spring semester will have their diplomas mailed from the Registrar’s Office to their home address in May.
  • Herff Jones, our graduation products partner, will be offering free inserts for those students who have already purchased their graduation announcements.  The inserts will be printed on the same paper and with the same font and ink as the announcement and will include the new date and time of the ceremony.  Once a new date has been chosen, a notice will be posted on the Herff Jones website at with instructions on re-orders. 
  • Parking registrations received so far will be voided and registration will re-open when details are confirmed for the new date. Please be sure to share this information with guests who may have already registered.

Cap and Gown Distribution

Given that travel restrictions are still in effect, caps and gowns can’t be picked up in the Bookstore beginning April 20 as originally planned. If you selected “in store pickup” for your order, the Bookstore will be happy to:

  • Hold your order until the campus re-opens and you are able to pick it up, or
  • Mail your order to your home address. Be sure to email with your home address and to request this shipment.
