June 2020 Commencement Ceremony

In light of the COVD-19 pandemic, EOU plans to finalize its plans for Commencement by May 1. Graduation is a very special time and a meaningful milestone in our students’ education and we want to celebrate that accomplishment. We are evaluating how we adapt our ceremony if social distancing measures are still in place at that time or how best to hold a virtual commencement.  Please click here to read frequently asked questions about commencement.
