Dear Shocker student,

Due to rising COVID-19 numbers in Sedgwick County and statewide, Wichita State has decided to postpone fall commencement scheduled to be held Sunday, November 22 and The Toast planned for earlier in the day. This difficult decision was made after much deliberation and upon consultation with the Sedgwick County Health Department. 

We know this is disappointing news. Commencement is an important milestone. You have worked hard and sacrificed much to earn your degree. Please be assured that we are committed to providing you with a safe in-person commencement ceremony at a future date. We look forward to celebrating your achievements with you as you walk across the stage in Koch Arena and are recognized. 

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the virus, we do not have a specific date identified at this time. Once it is safe to gather in person, we will announce our plans and communicate that information to you.

In closing we want to congratulate you on all your accomplishments. We are proud of you and welcome you as an alumnus of Wichita State University.
