Dear 2020 Graduates,

We feel your disappointment in not being able to celebrate Commencement traditionally. We are all working to manage the loss, stress, and frustration caused by COVID-19. We know you worked hard for your degree and to realize your educational dream.

We listened to your responses in the recent survey and heard a majority of you prefer an in-person event next May. It is important to know that this would be a separate event from the Class of 2021. You will have your own ceremony and related celebrations. We are looking at dates in early May and will confirm that day and time shortly. We look forward to celebrating with you and your families face to face in 2021.

Commencement FAQs

Below are some FAQs with more details still to come. If you have any questions regarding the Fall Commencement, you may contact Associate Dean of Students Ann Adams.

  • How will I receive my diploma?

    Diplomas will be ready at the start of fall semester. The Registrar’s office will email students when their diploma is ready. You will then have the option of indicating whether you would like to pick it up in person or have it mailed to you.

Congratulations, Class of 2020!

We are so proud of all our graduating students of the Class of 2020! Enjoy special messages and performances from across the entire Saint Martin's community for you and your family to enjoy.
