Based on guidance from CDC and others, UNC made the difficult decision to cancel Spring 2020 graduation ceremonies. We are working on alternate plans to allow our spring graduates a chance to celebrate their commencement in the future and will share plans as soon as we are able.  Please visit our FAQ webpage for more information.

UNC Commencement

Spring & Summer 2020 Update

Commencement is so much more than an event, especially for many of our graduates who may be first in their family to obtain a college or advanced degree. For our students, Commencement is a motivator, a symbol and the well-earned moment of public recognition that they deserve. And while UNC cannot host an in person event right now, the university's leadership and commencement teams are adamant that we provide the best possible celebration for our students. We don’t know what that will look like yet but we are going to be creative and committed to putting our students first.
