Continuing a LegacyCongratulations, APU Class of 2020

Even though we would have loved to hold our Commencement ceremonies in person this year, local and state directives and guidelines do not allow for large-scale events and mass gatherings. But in keeping with our commitment to honor and celebrate the Class of 2020 graduates in the best and safest way possible, we will hold four Virtual Commencements in December.

These ceremonies will honor each of our graduates with a full graduation ceremony that includes a welcome address, prayer, keynote speech, a mass hooding (master’s and doctoral graduates), conferral of degrees by President Ferguson, a slideshow of participating graduates, turning of the tassel (undergraduates), and Zoom interactions of students, families, friends, and faculty that will record participants during their hoodings, tassel turnings, and celebrations.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” – Ephesians 2:10
