https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm5ds7eAgqo">WATCH THE VIRTUAL CEREMONY HERE

In-Person Spring Commencement Rescheduled to be Held in the Fall During Week of Homecoming 2020

   This morning, nearly 1,000 Morgan State University graduates will be honored online for completing their matriculation. Beginning at 10 a.m., the University will debut a special ‘Virtual Recognition Ceremony’ video, the first such event of its kind in University history. The festive occasion will be highlighted with special messages, special presentations and a surprise keepsake for the graduates. Degrees for all the graduating students will also be conferred during this virtual event. The recorded Ceremony can be viewed via the University’s Commencement site and Morgan’s YouTube channel

To follow the conversation online the official hashtag is:


“We are very proud of all our graduating students and salute their accomplishments. It is unfortunate that we will be unable to recognize their hard work in reaching this milestone by hosting a traditional commencement ceremony for the students and their families to enjoy, however, we will still honor them, for now virtually, until we are able to provide them with a full graduation experience in the fall,” said Morgan President David K. Wilson. “We want all of our graduates and their families to watch online on May 16, as we let them know that they are a special class amid very special circumstances. Theirs will be a graduation class remembered by history.”
