Covid-19 Commencement Update

The University has been closely monitoring circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and has made the difficult decision to celebrate Commencement virtually instead of gathering together on our campus. We are currently working on a virtual ceremony that will be public on our website on May 9, 2020.  More information will come to the graduates starting next Monday, April 6, 2020.

Commencement is a meaningful and momentous day for our graduates, their loved ones and our entire University community and we will strive to make it a very special occasion even with our unique situation surrounding COVID-19.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. We are incredibly disappointed but the health and safety of our graduates and guests must take precedence.
