Currently we are unable to produce and send out any visitation letters for family members to attend the ceremony.
In the coming months, once plans for the Fall 2021 Convocation ceremonies are finalized, the Office of the Registrar will invite Spring graduands and their families to participate in the Fall ceremonies. All graduating students will have an opportunity to celebrate and be recognized as part of these ceremonies.
