Another wait for the Class of 2020 at UMass Dartmouth.

University officials have decided to postpone the Commencement ceremonies scheduled for October. Here's the official statement from the university:

UMass Dartmouth announced Wednesday that October Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2020 will be postponed until 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the original May 2020 Commencement ceremonies were postponed to October 9 and 10, 2020.

The University is committed to holding on-campus Commencement ceremonies when the events can be held safely per all federal and state guidelines and protocols.

“You finished your UMassD career under difficult circumstances, and you did so with grace, creativity, and passion. I commend you and look forward to a time when we call all celebrate together,” said Acting Chancellor Mark Preble.

In May 2020, the 1,410 undergraduates, 412 graduate students, 45 doctoral students, and 60 law students celebrated their graduation virtually alongside their peers, faculty, staff, and alumni.
