CHANGE COMING FOR SUMMER

On Thursday, June 4, 2020 the State University System directed that Florida public universities plan alternatives to in-person commencement ceremonies due to continued COVID-19 health guidelines limiting gatherings. We regret the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause for graduates and their families who looked forward to attending the University of Florida's rescheduled spring graduation weekend July 31-August 2 or our regularly scheduled summer graduation weekend August 7-8 on campus.

Rather than reschedule the spring ceremony weekend yet again only to face the possibility that it, too, will be canceled due to COVID-19, we want you to know two things. First we are committed to providing every graduate an opportunity to participate in a future in-person commencement ceremony once we are able to safely resume our regularly scheduled commencement ceremonies. Second, we will contact you once we are confident in-person ceremonies can resume. Whether it is December, May, or some other month, we look forward to welcoming you back, cheering for you and celebrating with you.
