Columbus, OH (March 17, 2020)

Spring Commencement, which was to held on May 15, has been postponed amid growing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Commencement is an important milestone and as such, the decision to postpone the spring Commencement ceremony was a difficult one since we, like you, look forward to celebrating this day with you, and your family and friends.
It is our plan that the ceremony can be held at a later, yet to be determined date. In the meantime, graduates will still have their degrees conferred on May 15, and diplomas will be mailed shortly thereafter.
