Howard Community College Postpones May Commencement Ceremony
All College Events Canceled Through May 31, 2020
With the rapidly evolving situation with coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Howard Community College made the difficult decision Friday to postpone its May commencement ceremony.
“Commencement is the culmination of years of work for the class of 2020 and the most joyous celebration at the college. However, there continues to be too much uncertainty about how long the Maryland state of emergency will last. As a result, the college made the difficult decision to postpone commencement,” said Dr. Kate Hetherington, president of Howard Community College. “Graduates deserve the best commencement possible, and with travel and events impacted by the coronavirus, we have decided to reschedule the event at a later date to allow students to fully celebrate with friends and family.”
Additional operational updates from the college:
- All college events are canceled through May 31. This will be reassessed on or before this date, as new developments arise.
- The college remains closed for spring break through March 22.
- All credit and noncredit classes are canceled March 23–29. Campus access is restricted.
- Beginning March 30, the college will move to remote (online) delivery of instruction and services for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.
Updates to the college’s operations, and more detailed information for students and the community will be shared on the college’s coronavirus webpage at howardcc.edu/coronavirus.
