May 2021 Commencement

As the university looks forward to Spring 2021, the May commencement ceremonies are scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 8, 2021. The university expects to make a decision about the format of the ceremonies early in the spring semester when more information is available about COVID-19 precautions. Until that time, graduates and families are asked to refrain from making any travel plans to attend an in-person ceremony, as a shift to a virtual May commencement ceremony may be necessary.
