**IMPORTANT COMMENCEMENT UPDATE**

As we continue to monitor the spread of the 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the guidance provided by official public health agencies, guaranteeing the health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students remains paramount. With this in mind, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Spring 2020 Commencement and combine it with our Fall 2020 ceremony. The Fall Commencement date/location have not been finalized. Once we have this information, the graduation website will be updated. Although we are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate graduates this spring, we hope that you will join us in the Fall to be recognized for your inspiring achievements.

We understand that in preparation to attend the Spring commencement, many of you may have purchased regalia/announcements or made hotel reservations. Please check the links below for further direction on addressing these concerns. Information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
