Commencement

 

The Commencement ceremony for spring and summer 2020 graduates, which had been planned for October 31, has been canceled due to ongoing health and safety concerns and travel issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Furman will survey 2020 graduates to get their thoughts on an event or recognition that will be most meaningful to them as the university seeks other ways to honor their accomplishments. Graduates, please keep an eye out for this email and consider completing the brief survey.

For more information or questions, please email commencement@furman.edu.
