Again, we encourage you to share this moment with your family and friends so they can celebrate virtually with you.

It is our hope and intention to hold an in-person ceremony later in the Summer, should it be safe to do so at that time. If we are unable to gather by August, we will plan to host commencement in December. We have ordered your caps and gowns and will mail them to the students who provided their mailing address. Please be advised that you do not need your cap and gown to participate in this Saturday's Virtual Degree Conferral Ceremony.

Congratulations graduate!
