Though Winter Commencement was postponed due to COVID-19, our hope is to hold a commencement next spring, which includes our spring 2020 and winter 2020 graduates, in addition to our planned spring 2021 graduates. We apologize for the disappointment and frustration that the postponement of our 2020 commencements have caused our graduates this year. We remain optimistic that a successful spring term can help open a safe path to celebrate all of our graduates.
