After hearing the ideas and wishes of many spring graduates, we have set times for the three ceremonies on Saturday, Aug. 8.

Students who graduated in Spring 2020 and Summer 2020 are invited, including those receiving master’s degrees and doctorates. (Note, this is a change from the original announcement. Graduates receiving advanced degrees will be included in the Saturday ceremonies and will be grouped by their college).

All graduates may invite family members to attend. We will send instructions for how we will gather in Hooper Eblen Center in late July. We will modify the floor seating, name card distribution and diploma cover presentation to help keep participants socially distanced.

Spring and Summer 2020 graduates who choose not to attend Aug. 8 may choose one of two future ceremonies, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, by making a request at The special requests must be received by either Oct. 15 for this fall or March 15, 2021, for spring in order for graduates to walk.
