The postponement of the 2020 Commencement Ceremonies (originally scheduled for May 15 and 16) will not affect the conferral of your degree. You may read the official 2020 Commencement Ceremonies postponed announcement.
Diplomas are not distributed at commencement. You will receive a diploma cover at the ceremony.
Typically diploma covers are handed out during the Spring Commencement Ceremonies.
In Spring 2020, a few graduates received their diploma cover at the Graduates on Parade Event.
The Commencement Office Staff is considered non-essential staff. Due to campus closure for the Summer and Fall, non-essential staff are unable to go on campus nor schedule in-person meetings/pickups. Once all staff are allowed to return to campus, the Commencement Office will arrange for in-person pickups in a safe manner or distribute them at the rescheduled Commencement ceremony. Unfortunately we will be unable to mail out diploma covers.
For more information about diplomas and graduation, visit the Office of the Registrar website or email the Office of the Registrar: firstname.lastname@example.org . Currently, the University has gone virtual with all services and phone lines are not monitored.
