Commencement Ceremony

2020 Commencement Ceremony

We realize many of our graduates expressed the desire to postpone this spring’s commencement for an in-person ceremony in December. Our state and local public officials have declared that mass gatherings will be among the last events that will be allowed to take place under the current public health orders. This has resulted in our need to cancel the December in-person ceremony, however, our team has been working to reimagine the celebration of our graduates. 

With input from the Associated Student Organization leaders, and in consultation with our Executive Leadership Team, faculty, staff and public health officials, we will celebrate our 2020 Jaguars by making history in a unique way.

Our main goal is to celebrate you in the safest and most meaningful way possible. With this in mind, we have planned the following ways to celebrate you:

  • June 18, 2020 - We will have a drive-through give-away to provide each graduating participant a cap, tassel and Class 2020 pin!
  • July 17, 2020 - A virtual commencement video will be released.
  • July 17, 2020 - We will have a live-streamed car parade. Please showcase your creative and expressive caps! **
    **Both the virtual commencement and the parade will allow for each graduate to be recognized in a way that can be viewed publicly by friends and family across our city, county, state and nation.

Please complete the 2020 Commencement Registration Form: if you are interested in participating in the 2020 commencement activities listed above. The deadline to complete the registration form is June 5, 2020.

Additional details and logistics will be provided to our graduates who register to participate in our 2020 Commencement activities.
