Registrar Commencement


August 2020 Graduates and December 2020 Graduation Candidates

Leadership teams composed of groups of faculty, staff, and students are meeting regularly throughout this semester to monitor the pandemic as related to our campus community. Those meetings result in our responses to conditions as they emerge with your safety as our top priority.

With the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in our local community and the increased danger of exposure through public events, Midwestern State University has decided to move to a virtual commencement ceremony for our August 2020 graduates and December 2020 graduation candidates.

Virtual Graduation Video to honor our graduates:

August 2020 graduates and December 2020 graduation candidates should have now received an invitation from Marching Order, our official commencement videography company, (through MSU's Graduation Connection email address) for instructions on how to safely and securely opt in with a photograph for the virtual graduation production.  You are encouraged to submit a nice quality photo, preferably in your cap and gown (and hood if master’s graduate), and if you decorated your mortar board, please wear or hold it in the photo to where it can be enjoyed!  You are invited to submit a photo to be included in the video, regardless of whether or not you attended the photo shoot on November 18-19.  The graduation video is expected to premier on December 21.  The deadline to submit your photo is December 4.

These days of the pandemic have been marked by challenges, personal and public. Midwestern State University takes pride in the measures our Mustangs family has taken to keep all of us and those around us safe. Thank you for your understanding as we make this needed adjustment for our August and December 2020 commencement celebration. 

Stay safe and well Mustangs!
