OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University has selected Aug. 29, 2020 to host its 155th Commencement, originally scheduled for April 24.
The university estimates the class of 2019-20 to total more than 5,727 graduates; more than 3,000 have applied for spring semester graduation. Weber State holds two graduation events each year, following fall and spring semesters.
“We're excited to confirm plans, conditions permitting, for commencement exercises to celebrate the class of 2020,” said WSU President Brad Mortensen. “We appreciate the patience and support of the campus community -- particularly graduates -- as we navigate this time together to keep each other safe and promote the educational pursuits of our students.”
Graduates are able to reserve a free cap, gown, tassel, diploma cover and cords through Weber State’s Wildcat Store. The last day to reserve the graduation packet will be May 8, 2020.
The Graduation Office will continue processing diplomas as normal. Diplomas will arrive in the mail once final grades have been submitted and degrees processed.
Weather permitting, on the evening of April 24, Weber State plans to highlight its pride for the historic class of 2020 by lighting the “W” on the hillside east of Stewart Stadium.
