graduate blowing confetti

Dear Class of 2020,

We are pleased to invite our May 2020, August 2020, and December 2020 graduates to an in-person ceremony Saturday, June 5. To best accommodate our three graduating classes, there will be some modifications to the ceremony, but each of you will have the opportunity to cross the graduation stage, be recognized individually, and have a photograph taken.

EMAIL RSVPis required for each graduate.  RSVP emails were sent to all 2020 graduates on April 5.  CHECK your preferred email, spam filter, and junk mail, in case it landed there.  It is very important that you adhere to deadlines so that planning can move forward.  The RSVP email gives instructions for any special information we may need to know about graduation students or their guests.  You MUST RSVP by May 5 (no later than 5:00 p.m.) to participate or receive guest tickets.  If you will not be attending, or not need tickets for guests, you will be able to report that on the RSVP.  Once the RSVPs close on May 5 at 5:00 p.m., we will then know how many to plan for and will then provide details about the ceremony, including time, location, and ticket distribution for all participants.

Streaming – the events will be streamed – watch this webpage for links and updates.

Professional photographer – will take the official graduation photo of the graduate on stage with the President.

We are proud of the perseverance you have demonstrated to reach this important milestone and we hope you will join us in making this a safe celebration.
