Update: May Graduation dates now set in August

We are writing regarding the rescheduling of the Spring 2020 commencement ceremonies.  Pending CDC and COVID-19 developments, the new commencement dates will be:

August 7, 2020 (Friday):         Graduate Student Commencement

                                                      2:30 p.m. ET ceremony for all colleges

August 8, 2020 (Saturday):    Undergraduate Student Commencement

                                                      9:00 a.m. ET College of Arts and Sciences and

                                                           College of Engineering and Computer Science

                                                      1:00 p.m. ET Gary W. Rollins College of Business and

                                                           College of Health, Education and Professional Studies

We will announce additional information at a later time. We will also provide options for students to attend a future commencement ceremony if they are unable to participate in August.

Thank you to the many graduating seniors and graduate students who responded when we asked for input on options for rescheduling commencement.  An August celebration was far-and-away the most popular.  It will be an absolute honor to host these festivities commemorating our students’ achievements.

Walking across a stage and receiving a diploma is a momentous occasion for students, their family and friends, and the many members of the UTC faculty and staff that were part of the academic journey.  UTC graduates earned their degrees and deserve a warm handshake, a pat on the back and a huge “well done!”  We are all looking forward to congratulating our Spring 2020 graduates. 

The COVID-19 outbreak has impacted operations at UTC, and we are continuously monitoring CDC guidelines. We know this is an uncertain and frustrating time, and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we continue to navigate through this crisis.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

We are MOCS!  Together we will soar.
