Texas A&M Spring Graduation Ceremonies Postponed; Semester finals will be issued online

A&M officials are considering in-person ceremony options for later this summer.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas —

Texas A&M officials have decided to postpone Spring graduations for the university due to the global pandemic of COVID-19.

Diplomas will be mailed to graduates, and A&M officials are considering in-person ceremony options for later this summer for May graduates who want to walk. 

At this time, there is currently no impact to graduation ceremonies in August.

Additionally, the university announced that final exams will not be taken in-person, and university leaders are working with college deans and faculty to figure out the best online testing options for students.

President Michael K. Young said in a press release that leaders at the university recognize how the cancellations and changes associated with the virus have created uncertainty and disappointment, but that Aggies “always rise to the occasion”.

“We need to take care of each other, support one another and together we will find our way through,” said Young.
