At Colorado State University, our priority is the health and well-being of our students and their families, our faculty and staff, and our entire CSU community. CSU is closely monitoring and following COVID-19 guidance as outlined by public health experts.
After much consideration, we have made the very difficult but necessary decision to postpone the Spring 2020 ceremonies. Recognizing the important milestone of being a part of the formal commencement ceremony, the spring and summer graduates will be invited to walk alongside fellow Rams during the Fall 2020 ceremonies.
With the decision to unite both May and December ceremonies, we anticipate releasing an updated Fall 2020 schedule as we are able.
Please visit the University’s information about COVID-19 webpage to read more about the University’s pandemic preparedness planning, other updates, and protocols for the campus community, including President McConnell’s most recent message to campus.
The Alumni Association is offering two options for everyone who already purchased a Grad Pack (cap, gown, and tassel rental, plus Alumni Association membership) for Spring 2020 ceremonies:
- Transfer their order in full to December to participate in the Fall 2020 Commencement Ceremony. Their Alumni Association membership will begin in May and continue for a full year after December’s ceremony.
- Get a full refund on the complete order, and receive a complimentary 1-year membership in the Alumni Association beginning in May.
Students may directly email the Alumni Association at email@example.com if they would like a refund. If they would like to transfer their order to December, they don’t need to do anything, and the Alumni Association will take care of the rest.
Faculty regalia refunds will go directly through Jostens (Clay Rogers - firstname.lastname@example.org).
