2020 Commencement Postponed

Urbana, OH (March 17, 2020)

Commencement, which was to held on May 9, 2020 has been postponed amid growing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Commencement is an important milestone and as such, the decision to postpone the 2020 Commencement ceremony was a difficult one since we, like you, look forward to celebrating this day with you, and your family and friends.
It is our plan that the ceremony can be held at a later, yet to be determined date. In the meantime, graduates will still have their degrees conferred on May 9, and diplomas will be mailed shortly thereafter.
