Schedule of Events

It deeply saddens us that we must postpone our Spring 2020 commencement ceremony until this fall. We know this is very disappointing for our graduates, their families and their friends. We will have an online celebration of your accomplishments on May 9, but it will not be a virtual commencement ceremony. It is important to note that your degree will be conferred as usual in May (or when your degree requirements are completed) so any plans for graduate school and jobs will not be affected by a postponement of the graduation ceremony.


Join us May 9 for a virtual celebration of the Class of 2020

10:00 a.m. (CDT) - Traditional Undergraduate

2:00 p.m. (CDT) - Online & Graduate Programs
