May 2020 Commencement Has Been Rescheduled to October 3, 2020

We would love nothing more than to hold our traditional weekend celebration in May to honor our graduates. However, the health and wellness of our students, guests, faculty and staff is our first priority, so we will be rescheduling our 2020 commencement ceremony for Saturday, Oct. 3, during homecoming weekend.

It may be a different day, but it is still all yours. All of the hard work, the late study nights, the time spent game planning your future—it’s all going to culminate in this day of celebration. Any feelings of doubt you may have experienced over the past few years, times when you felt like this day would never get here—they all become distant memories on graduation day.

Commencement Ceremony

The commencement ceremony—for both undergraduate and graduate students—will take place on Saturday, Oct. 3, at 10:30 a.m., at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
