Jacksonville University has remained committed to creating a safe learning experience for our students and Dolphin community this fall. Campus Leadership and experts have been working together for months to develop a plan that prioritizes the health and safety of every member of our Dolphin Family as students to return students to campus.
In April, we announced our intent to reschedule the Class of 2020 Commencement ceremony to this October, during Homecoming and Family Weekend. After careful consideration, and out of an abundance of caution for your health and safety, we concluded that it is in everyone's best interest that we postpone Commencement until next spring.
We invite the Class of 2020 to join us under the oaks alongside the Class of 2021 for Commencement this spring. We hope that once it is safe to do so, you will return to your alma mater to reconnect with former classmates and team mates, and finally turn your tassel. Graduate and doctoral Commencement is scheduled for May 6, 2021, while undergraduate Commencement is scheduled for May 8, 2021
