2020 and 2021

Thank You!

We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to envision the details of the Class of 2020’s and Class of 2021’s Commencement Exercises.

We are diligently examining State of Connecticut and town health and safety guidelines, along with University-specific plans, and we are evaluating what each would mean in order to achieve distinct Commencement celebrations for both our Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 graduates.
