Letter to the Class of 2020, January 25, 2021
Dear Member of the Rosemont College Class of 2020,
We are excited to share that plans are underway to hold in-person Commencement Ceremonies for the 2020 and 2021 Graduates of Rosemont College!
Multiple small ceremonies will be held on campus on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16. The Ceremonies will be held outside under a tent on Connelly Green. Tent capacity will be limited to 250 individuals, including graduates, faculty, members of the platform party, and guests. Social distancing will be observed, and all participants and guests must wear masks. Social distancing also requires that each graduate observe the ticket limit for their guests.
You will receive specific information about the date and time of the Ceremony for your degree in the coming weeks.
The organization of the multiple Ceremonies, as well as the number of guest tickets assigned to each graduate, will be determined on the number of graduates who plan to attend Commencement.
Please complete the form below by Monday, February 1 to indicate if you plan to join us for Commencement this May. We recognize that your plans may change, but your response will help us make plans to create a memorable Commencement experience for you and your family. You deserve that, and we want nothing more than to give you the Commencement day that you missed last spring.
With our thanks,
President Boyers & Provost Nash
The $150 Graduation Fee has been charged to each 2020 Degree Recipient to cover the following expenses: 1) Academic Graduation Audits conducted by multiple departments to ensure that degree requirements are met, 2) cost of diploma and mailing the diploma to home addresses, 3) cost of academic attire, and 4) partial cost of the Commencement Ceremony. If they elect to take part in the 2021 Commencement Ceremony, 2020 Degree Recipients will not be charged an additional Graduation Fee in 2021.
Congratulations to all Rosemont College 2020 Degree Recipients!
