December 2020 Virtual Commencement
On Saturday, Dec. 12, VCU will host a virtual commencement celebration to honor the many achievements of our August and December graduates. The celebration will include a ceremony broadcast with an interactive online experience for graduates and their families. More information may be found on the VCU student affairs blog.
Additionally, faculty and staff from VCUarts departments will come together virtually to celebrate graduates’ achievements. A representative from each department will be reaching out to December graduates.
Commencement care packages
VCUarts would like to acknowledge graduates’ accomplishments by sending commencement care packages. This will include a copy of the printed program featuring the names of the August and December 2020 graduates, and other items to commemorate this particular moment in history.
VCUarts graduates are encouraged to update their permanent address in eServices to ensure they receive this package at their current U.S. address.
