Graduating Class of 2021

ISSS is excited for one of our largest ever graduating classes of international students. As previously announced, Spring Commencement will be a series of in-person cermonies from May 14-16. These ceremonies will be live-streamed, but if graduating students want to participate (have their names read), they should plan on attending in person. 
ISSS is also looking forward to celebrating and recognizing international graduates during a virtual event on the morning of May 14 and an in-person reception at the International Student Center throughout the day. 
Members of the graduating Class of 2021 will soon receive more information about these international graduation celebration events hosted by ISSS.
