Updates on Fall Commencement

At this time, we are working on plans to celebrate with our graduates – including the spring graduates whose ceremony was delayed this May. The specifics of the plan and timing of the celebrations will depend upon public health guidance as the semester unfolds. We maintain our commitment to celebrate with our students as we finalize our plans for the Fall semester.

Spring 2020 graduates – please continue to monitor your CSU email after May for information regarding the December ceremony. 

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.

Regalia

For questions regarding the transfer of your regalia order to the December ceremonies or regalia refunds, please email member@colostate.edu. Cap and gown info.

Degree Conferral

The cancellation of the graduation ceremony will not affect conferral of degrees. A few weeks before the end of the semester, graduating seniors will receive an email from the Registrar’s Office with information about updating mailing addresses in RAMweb so that diplomas can be mailed. Diplomas are typically received 4-6 weeks after degree conferral.
