One June 4, 2020 the State University System directed all Florida public universities to plan alternatives to in-person commencement ceremonies due to continued COVID-19 health guidelines limiting gatherings. This means we will not be able to hold our rescheduled spring graduation weekend July 31-August 3 and August 7 as we had planned. We regret the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause for graduates and their families.
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 that we are committed to providing every graduate the opportunity to participate in a future in-person commencement ceremony once we are able to safely resume our regularly scheduled commencement ceremonies. We wll contact our graduates when that time comes. We look forward to celebrating with our graduates in person.
