Students celebrate in cap and gowns at 2019 graduation ceremony.


Many of our graduates have asked about the status of the 2021 Commencement ceremony. While we do not yet have a clear answer on whether we will be able to safely host an in-person ceremony this spring, we plan to celebrate the Class of 2021 on Wednesday, May 26.

Regardless of whether the ceremony itself is able to be held in-person, all candidates for graduation must be sure to first complete and submit the Application to Graduate form. This step begins the audit process that must be completed before your degree can be issued. If you have questions about your application, please contact at

Gowns, caps, tassels, diploma frames, and other commemorative keepsake items will be available for purchase on our graduation website by mid-February 2021. The site will be live through the end of August 2021.

The application to become the class speaker will be live by the end of January 2021.

If you have questions or suggestions about the virtual ceremony, please direct them to
