Commencement – Spring 2020

We’re planning on holding a special commencement ceremony for our Spring graduates on Aug. 15. This Saturday event should give everyone enough time to make arrangements so they can attend.

Though you do not have to attend the ceremony (to “walk”), we hope you’ll be able to come back for it. Commencement is a special event for many members of our Tech Family, but it’s not a requirement.  We will provide more info on the specific timing and logistics as we get closer to that date. We will be following the health and safety guidelines that are in place at that time, and that may impact the number of ceremonies that we have on that date.

Spring graduates will actually receive their degrees on May 23, and we will mail out diplomas the following week. You can also request your final transcripts at that point. The ceremony on Aug. 15 is a celebration of all your hard work – a time to spend with friends and family.

We do hope to see as many graduates as possible attend the Aug. 15 ceremony, and remember, we’ll have some surprises along the way for our special Class of 2020.
