Get ready for ... 2020 November Commencement

Plans for the 2020 November Commencement ceremony are underway:

Date: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 (the day before Thanksgiving)
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Place: Pepsi Arena — Health and Fitness Center (HFC)

The ceremony will be a shorter version of the traditional QU Commencement, less than an hour. The commencement speaker will be Brian McGee, Ph.D., president of the university, who will also be responsible for the degree investiture. Line-up will be in the three-court area beginning at 9:30 a.m. with graduates arriving through the west doors of the HFC, next to parking lot B. More information will be forthcoming with regards to tickets. A sign-up sheet will be emailed to students eligible to participate in the November ceremony. Please note that if there are not enough graduates participating in the ceremony, it will be canceled and those graduates who planned to participate will have the option to attend the 2021 May ceremony.
