Spring 2020 Convocation Canceled

In keeping with directives from the state and federal government to suspend large events and promote social distancing, the University of Georgia has been instructed by the University System of Georgia that all public events for the remainder of the Spring semester have been canceled. This list includes, but is not limited to, the university's Commencement and the College of Engineering's Convocation.

We realize the cancellation of many of these activities is extremely disappointing, particularly the cancellation of Spring Commencement and Convocation. The university and the college are exploring other ways to honor our graduates and will communicate when those plans are known. These decisions are not made lightly, but with the best interests of our campus community and our students’ families and loved ones in mind.

Students will still be able to graduate, consistent with academic standards, but the actual ceremonies for both undergraduate and graduate Commencement and Convocation will be canceled.
