To our Mountie Graduates in the Class of 2020,
The Registrar’s Office wanted to update you on all matters pertaining to the end of the semester. We are working diligently to ensure the end of the semester will flow smoothly for you as you get ready to embark on the next chapter of your lives.
Final grades are due to the office on Monday, May 18, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. Once all final grades are submitted, we will begin to complete final graduation audits. At that time, your degree will either be conferred or your graduation date will be moved to August or December if you have outstanding degree requirements. You will receive a letter from our office if your anticipated graduation date is changed.
The College partnered with a new company to be able to print your diplomas on campus. This should allow us to shorten the turnaround time when we can get your diploma in your hands. We anticipate printing the diplomas the week of June 1, 2020.
Additionally, our office is beginning the process of preparing caps and gowns to be mailed to students who indicated they were going to walk in the ceremony this May. Those items were ordered well before the COVID-19 crisis impacted our semester. Caps and gowns will be mailed to those students before the end of the week of May 3.
Finally, we are working diligently with the Communications department to film a conferral ceremony for students who have completed their degrees this May. What this means is that only those students who have completed all degree requirements by May 18, 2020 will be recognized during the ceremony which is slated to be published on Sunday, May 24, 2020. For all other graduates who still have requirements to complete, we hope to celebrate your milestone later this summer or fall with all the May 2020 graduates. Once the state issues clear guidelines for social distancing moving forwards, we will examine the options we have for a full-fledged ceremony.
