Upcoming Campus Events

2019 Graduation

It is with great anticipation and excitement that we are approaching graduation.  As students, this is the culmination of all of your hard work and effort.  Your family, friends, and other members of your support network will also share in this important milestone.  But for the faculty and staff this is no less an important and satisfying event!

First and foremost, we urge you to remain focused on your studies right through the end of your program.  While some of you have already successfully completed your program requirements, many of you will be finishing your academic requirements right through the end of the term.  You must have successfully completed all graduation requirements in order to participate in graduation.

More information will be coming in due course regarding specific procedures, pick up of your caps and gowns and other regalia, and more.

This year, we will hold graduation ceremonies in three locations:
