This unique experience is planned to provide each graduate with the recognition they rightfully deserve. Students who desire an in-person graduation ceremony are invited to participate in the 2021 graduation ceremony, planned for May 13, 2021, and be recognized as a 2020 graduate. The Registrar’s Office will communicate additional details with 2020 graduates closer to time.
