future GRADUATION Ceremonies
The current plan is to have two days of ceremonies in the spring of 2021 on May 15th and May 16th, 2021. The tentative schedule is as follows:
- Saturday May 15th, 2021 – 10:00 a.m. Graduate Ceremony Class of 2021, 2:00 p.m. Undergraduate Ceremony Class of 2021, The Mirenda Center
- Sunday May 16th, 2021 – 10:00 a.m. Graduate Ceremony Class of 2020, 2:00 p.m. Undergraduate Ceremony Class of 2020, The Mirenda Center
These plans are tentative based upon the rules governing large public gatherings in place by the Pennsylvania Department of Health in the spring of next year. Please keep an eye on this page for future updates. An updated FAQ for the Class of 2021 will be made public in February 2021.
Timeline for Conferral of Degrees and Diploma Distribution:
Due to our current situation, the Degree Conferral Process will be taking place remotely and diplomas will be distributed via mail by Diplomas on Demand. Once the diplomas have been printed, you will receive an email indicating when Diplomas on Demand have mailed out the diplomas. Please allow up to two weeks for the delivery of the diplomas.
If you are in need of verification of your degree for an employer- a graduating student can order their electronic transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse- A graduating student can place a transcript order now and select the option "AFTER DEGREE IS AWARDED" if you select this option- Once all the degrees are conferred- the transcript order would automatically be fulfilled and a transcript order would be sent out that day electronically. This would be the fastest option if a graduating student is in need of verification of graduation.
Thank you very much for your understanding during this time and congratulations to all our graduates. We look forward to seeing all of you for a ceremony at some point in the future!
