COVID-19 Advisory

Information and updates regarding COVID-19Updated: September 18, 2020


Earlier this year, Missouri State rescheduled spring 2020 commencement ceremonies for Oct. 18 and Dec. 11 at JQH Arena. It's time to plan for those events and we are asking our graduates for your RSVP.

A survey has been distributed to all May and Summer 2020 graduates, where your response will confirm your intent to attend or not attend the upcoming ceremonies. We want to celebrate you in a safe manner, consistent with COVID-19 guidelines.

This information will also help us plan for graduates who are unable to attend. The University will be mailing diploma covers and honor cords and will send those items after the December ceremony to those graduates unable to attend either ceremony.  


Celebrate with us

Join us in a virtual celebration for the Class of 2020 with frames, GIFs, stickers and video. We can't wait to be together for our official in-person formal ceremony.
