HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The Montana Board of Regents and the Montana University System announced on Wednesday that all in-person Spring 2020 commencements are canceled.
Commissioner of Higher Education Clayton T. Christian said, “I share this directive with great sadness…But as we know all too well, this spring is different. The safety of our graduates, their families and the communities surrounding our campuses supersedes our desire to mark this important milestone in person.”
Christian says they are relying on all Montana campuses to find ways acknowledge the achievements of all university students.
MSU-Northern and many other universities have decided to hold the Spring 2020 Commencement alongside the Fall 2020 Commencement.
MSU-Northern’s Fall 2020 Commencement is usually held the first Saturday in December.
