A Message to the Class of 2020


Washington University in St. Louis has canceled the Commencement ceremony on May 15, due to health and safety concerns related to COVID-19.

We know that this decision is very disappointing for our graduates and their families. Our students work incredibly hard to reach this milestone and deserve to be celebrated. We are already starting to think about how we can celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 at another time.

The health and well-being of the Washington University community is our highest priority.

Please watch for additional communications in the weeks to come related to a future celebration.
