The commencement ceremony that had originally been planned to celebrate the 2020 spring graduates of Southwestern Oklahoma State University has been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The ceremony was originally scheduled for November 21.
In a recent press release, school officials say there are other options available for those graduates.
Those options include graduates having an opportunity to take a professional photo with their gown and diploma cover during a two-day period in November at the Pioneer Cellular Event Center. A graduation program will also be printed, and each graduate will receive four copies. Even though there will not be a live ceremony in November, SWOSU invite graduates to participate in the May 2021 ceremony.
More details will be provided soon on the SWOSU website, but university officials wanted to get word to the graduates and their families.
