Commencement

Sadly, the May 2020 and the December 2020 Commencement ceremonies have been postponed due to the ever-changing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic and in adherence of the guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Governor's Office.

We are acutely aware of the difficult decisions being made across our nation to combat the continued spread of COVID-19 and the tremendous responsibility we have to safeguard the health and well-being of our community including students, faculty, staff and visitors.

Please know that the University shares the disappointment of not being able to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 with a traditional in-person ceremony in the fall of 2020.

When it is deemed safe, consideration will be given to holding in-person ceremonies to celebrate the Class of 2020.
