Out of an abundance of caution, the Commencement schedule for December has been altered. Georgia State is pleased to announce that all 2020 graduates will be celebrated in person this fall at Center Parc Stadium on December 16 & 17. We know how important this accomplishment is and want to provide a safe and celebratory experience for you and your loved ones.
For those who do not feel comfortable participating in person, we will also be hosting virtual ceremonies for each academic school and college. All graduates from spring, summer and fall will be included in the virtual ceremonies. More information on when those ceremonies will take place will be available in the coming weeks.
We know many students were not able to register for various reasons before the Nov. 15 deadline for the December commencement ceremonies. We tried our very best to ensure students were informed in as timely a manner as possible and that we had all of the logistical details in place to serve our graduates. Because the success of our commencements relies on the collaboration of so many organizations, including many outside vendors, we are unable to extend the deadlines for the events. We recognize the disappointment of those who have been unable to register in time for our ceremonies, and we know how meaningful these events are for you. We will conduct virtual ceremonies on Dec. 18 and 2020 graduates are invited to participate in our spring 2021 ceremonies. We are very sorry the circumstances surrounding this year’s commencements have affected our ability to ensure all graduates can receive the recognition they so well deserve. Congratulations on earning your degree.
