Fall 2020 Commencement

Commencement is among the most important days in the lives of our graduates. The on-going pandemic has affected the normal flow of campus operations and Commencement plans are being impacted accordingly. VSU officials are monitoring the situation and continue to be in contact with public health experts for the latest guidance on social distancing and public gatherings. We are committed to making the best decision regarding the proper format for Commencement with the safety of our graduates and their guests as our guiding priority. Once the University has made a decision about how Commencement will be celebrated, the details of that decision will be communicated to our graduates on this website as well as through all available campus platforms. We appreciate your patience.
