Congratulations Class of 2020

Spring 2020 Commencement, December 12, 2020

The Commencement ceremony is an important milestone that marks a significant achievement for graduates. It is our desire to ensure that students and their families are able to have an authentic commencement experience. Therefore, we are postponing Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony until Saturday, December 12, 2020, this date change will include participation from spring, summer, and fall graduates. Based on the analysis of healthcare organizations, it appears that the current pandemic crisis will remain problematic through the summer months. As a result, we did not want to put anyone in harm’s way by trying to hold commencement during that time.

We continue to stand together during this unprecedented time. Once we come through this crisis situation, we will evolve stronger and better. We will keep the Lion Family abreast of new developments.
