October 1, 2020 Update: Class of 2020 Virtual Commencement Ceremony

To protect the health and safety of our graduates and their supporters, Central Michigan University will continue to postpone in-person commencement ceremonies. Until we can celebrate in-person, we will honor the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 with a virtual ceremony the weekend of November 20-22. In preparation for the virtual event, we will be hosting pre-commencement photo sessions October 24, 26 and 27. Graduates who are unable to attend will have the opportunity to submit their own photo. For additional information please see the virtual ceremony page.

The virtual ceremony is not intended as a replacement for your graduation day, rather it is an opportunity to celebrate your success as we continue to plan for a special Class of 2020 Commencement Ceremony when it is once again safe to gather in person. Graduates also are always welcome to return to CMU for any future commencement event. To receive notifications regarding commencement ceremonies, graduates should complete the Commencement Notification form
