Updated October 26, 2020

It was communicated on July 30, 2020, that the Fall 2020 Commencement Ceremony, scheduled for Saturday, December 19, has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To celebrate our summer and fall 2020 graduates, the university will do the following:

  • Create a special website to acknowledge and celebrate our graduates. The website will look similar to the spring 2020 celebrating graduates website. Information about how to submit a student profile will be shared with eligible students in early November.
  • Each graduate will receive a diploma cover, alumni gift and program in late January/early February in the mail.
  • Diplomas are mailed separately in early February.
  • All students eligible to graduate in summer and fall 2020 (and students who graduated this past spring) will be invited to attend the Spring 2021 ceremony. We are currently exploring dates and locations for the ceremony however it will be held on a weekend at the end of April or early May 2021.

You may purchase a cap and gown today by contacting the bookstore directly at 313-593-5551 Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. or you can email sm458@bncollege.com.
