Information for Students about Graduation

Welcome students in the class of 2020! This section provides specific information to help you plan for and enjoy your dental school graduation. Originally, commencement weekend was planned for June 12-14, 2020, however we have decided to postpone Commencement Weekend activities. The input from students and residents is that the majority would prefer a class celebration in person if possible at a future date, rather than a virtual event. Our commencement planning committee will collaborate on ideas toward that goal. Please visit this page often because it will be regularly updated with new information.

Commencement Event Update

Please save the date of Sunday, June 14, at 2:00 pm, for a special live online awards event. We continue to plan for an in-person graduation ceremony when it is feasible, but want to use our original commencement date for this special awards celebration. 

We will be hosting the Class of 2020 Virtual Awards Celebration live to present a variety of student awards, including those that are typically presented during the Alumni/Graduate Banquet. Class leaders will also share faculty and staff award winners as voted on by the class. The event will also feature a special video presentation to celebrate student achievements during this unprecedented year. We hope you can join us.
