The University of Virginia at Wise is planning to hold a virtual ceremony in order to give out degrees in May. Taking place on May 9th, the ceremony is slated to begin at 11am. Officials of UVA Wise say this will officially mark the end of the academic year and also allow those who’ve earned their degree to graduate on time. Their UVA 2020 Commencement is planned for Sunday, October 4th at the David J. Prior Convocation Center. They are cautioning that the date is tentative and may change later due to the pandemic.
Additionally their commencement page stated that they plan to determine the Commencement Ceremony time at a later date. They added that while they understand the hopes for an in-person ceremony they are alerting everyone to expect an email from the Registrar’s office with details on their distribution plans for caps and gowns. Area students will have the option to pick up their package from the campus or from the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon on selected days. Non-local students should expect to receive theirs in the mail.
