Commencement Update


Dear Panthers,

Plymouth State University is pleased to share this update regarding Commencement. We plan for the Class of 2020 to have its well-deserved spotlight next spring, when it joins with the Class of 2021 in combined Commencement celebrations.

Graduate Commencement for both classes will be held on Thursday evening, May 6, followed by the Class of 2021 Undergraduate Commencement on Saturday, May 8, and the Class of 2020 Undergraduate Commencement on Sunday, May 9. Timing for these events and other details will be shared at a later date.

Please note that this schedule is still tentative due to COVID-19, which we hope will be sufficiently under control by that point. As always, the health and safety of our community is our primary concern and we will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly in everyone’s best interest.

Your patience and adherence to safety protocols has made the Fall 2020 semester successful up to now. Thank you for your part in this effort. We are all in this together and your continued cooperation is greatly appreciated.

This has been a year like no other, and we promise that next year’s Commencement celebrations will be extra special and worth the wait!
