Spring Commencement: October 10, 2020

This is the College's official commencement site. Information below subject to update. Please check back regularly for updates.

On Saturday, October 10, the commencement committee made the difficult decision to truncate the 6:00 p.m. ceremony in preparation for the impending weather. Our goal was for every graduate who was physically present to cross the Cistern before the rain began. We regret that we were unable to read the names of graduates who were participating virtually.  

The names of all graduates will be read, along with any uploaded photos, as part of the official commencement videos for all four ceremonies. The commencement videos will be emailed to students and archived on the commencement website in approximately 4 weeks.

Apply to Graduate

A graduation application is required before a student is eligible to participate in an upcoming commencement ceremony. Failure to complete the application promptly can result in a delay in both degree posting and diploma ordering, and it can also result in the student's name being omitted from the commencement program and ceremony ticket list. (Participation in commencement is assumed and encouraged, however, it is not mandatory.)
