May/August Commencement FAQs

August graduates’ diplomas will be available for pick up in the Registrar’s office in M.E. Sadler Hall, Room 1006, the week of Aug. 11-14. Any diplomas that are not picked up will be sent by certified mail to the permanent address listed in the system.

The May 2020 graduates’ deluxe diploma cover will be mailed to their permanent address along with a copy of the Commencement program and tassel.

There will not be a virtual ceremony in place of the Aug. 8 ceremonies. Graduates will receive the deluxe diploma cover that is typically handed out during the ceremony, a copy of the Commencement program and a tassle. We hope to celebrate in-person together and welcome all our graduates and their families back to campus in the near future.

The Aug. 8 Commencement ceremonies were canceled due to the surge of COVID-19 cases across the country. Three Commencement ceremonies were scheduled for Aug. 8 – all to be held inside Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena with capacity limited to 50 percent of the indoor arena’s capacity and physical distancing in place.
