Commencement Schedule
Inclement Weather Procedure
In the case of inclement weather, if weather conditions appear life threatening (lightning, tornado warnings, etc.), the university’s inclement weather plan will be put in place. This will be posted on the JMU website and announced on the radio at AM 1610.
JMU’s public safety department makes this decision and will inform students if a decision has been made through our JMU Emergency Alert System.
All ceremonies will otherwise be held in rain or shine.
The University Ceremony that is to be held on Friday, will be canceled or postponed if the inclement weather plan is enacted. A decision will be made by 12:30 p.m. that day.
If inclement weather is called for Saturday; the decision will be made by 7:00 a.m. The individual college ceremonies will be held later in the day or moved to indoor venues and times will change. The Commencement Home Page will have updated information should this issue occur.
