Following the directives of state and federal government to suspend large events and
promote social distancing, the University System of Georgia has canceled all public
events for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.
We realize that the cancellation of Spring Commencement on Friday, May 8, and Terry’s Graduate Convocation on Thursday, May 7, is extremely disappointing. The University is exploring other ways to honor our graduates and will share those plans when they are known. These decisions are not made lightly, but with the best interests of our campus community and our students’ families and loved ones in mind.
Students will still be able to graduate, consistent with academic standards, but the May ceremonies for both UGA Commencement and Terry Convocation have been canceled.
