Official Stetson University Graduation Tassle

Commencement 2020

It is extraordinary how the Stetson community has responded to the rapid changes the university has had to make over the past few months, but it is especially gratifying to see how our seniors have responded with grace and resilience beyond expectations. We are sorry we will not be together in May to celebrate your achievements, but through the hard work of students, faculty and staff on our Senior Experience committee we have been able to set a date for commencement weekend: Friday and Saturday, Dec. 11-12.

Based on student survey feedback, and in working with Facilities and Academic Affairs, we believe these are the dates that present the best opportunity to successfully gather together for a two-day celebration to mark our 2020 Commencement. Although we are optimistic that we can be back on campus together, as you know it is still uncertain how or when colleges and universities will be able to hold large events and whether there will be size restrictions. Stetson University continues to follow state and local guidance and recommendations from the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

We look forward to celebrating your academic achievements and involvement in the Stetson and DeLand communities. Please share this page with your family and friends, as this is your number one resource for all commencement-related activities.

Please check back for more information, as details will be updated routinely.
