MAY COMMENCEMENT UPDATE: 03-25-2020
On May 16, 2020 West Virginia University will hold Mountaineer Graduation Day – an
commencement experience for the Class of 2020 May graduates.
This online commencement will include ways for graduates to share their celebration
with their classmates, family and friends, as well as special online moments to
connect them with the University they love. More information will be shared soon
with candidates and their families.
In addition, the University will hold a special commencement ceremony for all May
graduates on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020 to recognize and celebrate the graduates’
accomplishments. Details regarding next steps to participate in the virtual
ceremony will be forthcoming to your Mix e-mail account within the next two weeks.
You may wish to keep your regalia if you plan to participate in the virtual celebration in May and/or the ceremony in December. We are planning several ways for you to interact via social media during the virtual ceremony and you may want to wear your regalia to post photos, videos, etc. We also hope that you are able to participate in the December ceremony at the Coliseum.
