Fall Commencement Ceremonies
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR GRADUATION.
THE FALL 2020 CEREMONIES WILL BE VIRTUAL.
We have partnered with Marching Order to create your virtual graduation experience for fall 2020. All summer and fall graduates from the Colleges of Applied Health Sciences; Architecture, Design, and the Arts; Business Administration; Education; Engineering; Liberal Arts and Sciences; Nursing; Urban Planning and Public Affairs; School of Public Health; and John Marshall Law School are invited to create a personalized slide for the fall ceremonies. You can submit a photo and personal message to be included with your slide.
There will be three ceremonies, one for graduate students, one for undergraduate students, and one for John Marshall Law School students. All ceremonies will go live on this website at 2:00pm on December 12. For safety reasons related to COVID-19, all ceremonies will be prerecorded.
