Commencement Schedule

It is our hope to be able to hold May Commencements in 2021.  We will continue to base decisions on the current state of the pandemic, and to follow the guidance from the Governor of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Health at that time.  We will keep this website updated as we get closer to the end of the semester.
