Commencement postponed due to COVID-19

This year’s commencement celebration for seniors and their families has been postponed with no back-up dates determined at this time.

After receiving news of residence halls closures, students have now been informed by an email sent from Denise Russell, director of publications and marketing, that commencement will be postponed.

“We will continue to monitor the public health situation in the weeks ahead and work to schedule a time to celebrate this important milestone with students, their friends and family,” Russell stated in an email.

Students will still be issued a diploma in May if they have successfully obtained all the necessary credits.

The university also offered updates regarding housing and registration for next fall. Students affected by the recent closure of residence halls will receive room and board credits, and there will be no financial holds on student accounts when registering for next fall.
