Augusta University is planning to host in-person commencement ceremonies Friday, Dec. 11, 2020, recognizing graduates from the spring, summer and fall semesters.
There will be several sessions at the James Brown Arena in order to accommodate appropriate social distancing and observe other COVID-19 precautions. Each session will incorporate standard graduation traditions to include the ringing of the historic Arsenal Bell and individual recognition of each graduate.
“Commencement is one of the most rewarding events I have the privilege to attend as a university president,” said Augusta University President Brooks A. Keel, PhD. “It gives me great pleasure to share this announcement with our students, faculty and staff today, and with the local community that is always so supportive of Augusta University. The year 2020 has been unpredictable and challenging, and we are glad to celebrate the accomplishments of our students with their families.”
Students must RSVP by Oct. 25 to participate, and each student will be allowed four tickets for guests. Students will be receiving an individual email about the RSVP process and information on ordering regalia.
More information will be made available on the Augusta University website.
Spring 2020 Commencement was held virtually due to the emergence of COVID-19.
