Due to the COVID-19 virus impacting University Operations, President Barchi has asked that we foster a healthy community.  To slow the spread of this serious virus and to protect our students and staff, we have made the decision to mail all May 2020 diplomas.  Therefore, we urge you to complete the online application for diploma mailing to receive your diploma.
