This year’s Commencement celebration will be a pre-recorded video streamed virtually on Thursday, May 27 at 6 p.m. Due to the nature of the program and video production timelines, we are unable to include graduates who missed the April 30 graduation deadline. We do still want to celebrate you and your achievements and invite you to watch the celebration and participate in the live chat.

After the final 2021 Graduate list is complete, a commemorative graduate program will be created, which will include your name and degree. We will be following up with a link to submit a photo to share in this program.
