Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases across our state and in order to remain very cautious, the University has decided to hold the Fall 2020 commencement virtually. On Saturday, December 12
we will live stream the virtual commencement
beginning at 11:00 am
. Graduates will be able to purchase copies of the ceremony after the event.
Please allow me to express our deepest regrets that we will not be able to hold an in person graduation as planned due to the continued issues surrounding the Coronavirus Pandemic. However, please rest assured that we are working very hard to develop a creative and dynamic virtual commencement for the Fall Class of 2020. If conditions are favorable for us to hold the Spring 2021 ceremony in person, we welcome each of you to participate in both our Virtual Commencement as well as the Spring 2021 ceremony.
We have extended the deadline for participation! All Fall 2020 graduating students who want to participate in the virtual ceremony must apply for graduation no later than November 06, 2020 to be included.
In order to make this experience as personal and special as possible, we need your help. Attached you will find 2 PowerPoint slide options. You may choose either slide and add your own photos, degree name, minor and quote that best represents you. After you complete your slide within the PowerPoint program, you will need to save it as a JPEG and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
for inclusion in the virtual ceremony by November 11, 2020
. Please note that submissions containing profanity, inappropriate and/or offensive photographs or language will not be eligible for inclusion in the ceremony. Make sure you save your slide with the following tag: Last Name, First Name - Degree.
Although we understand that this situation is less than ideal and not the way you envisioned celebrating your accomplishments at CU, please know that we are doing everything possible to make your day special.
