Events News SGPP Student Information Stories

The university has made the decision to combine October 2020 and January 2021 commencement convocations for the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs (SGPP) into one ceremony, which will be held on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2021.

As with the July 17 virtual SGPP commencement, we will offer one unified ceremony, bringing together graduates from the Schools of Business and Technology, Education, and Health and Human Services.

While this decision was made, in part, in response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is also part of a strategic direction to enhance engagement among students and alumni in the SGPP.

Students who graduate in October will be sent their transcripts and diplomas shortly thereafter, but are invited to commence virtually in January.
