Graduation Information

    Coronavirus Update:

    Saint Leo University is continuing to follow the updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local and state health authorities concerning the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) respiratory illness.

    As a result of stronger guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large group gatherings, Saint Leo University will be rescheduling the celebration of commencement for a later date at select locations.

    • The Key West commencement ceremony scheduled for April 18 is postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

    • The Florida commencement ceremony originally scheduled for May 2 has been rescheduled for June 1. The Saint Leo Under the Stars graduation celebration and Baccalaureate Mass have been rescheduled for May 31.

    • The San Diego commencement ceremony scheduled for May 8 is postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

    As of now all other ceremonies remain as originally scheduled. However, this situation is fluid, and as a result, students should check back frequently for updates regarding their commencement location.

    Please know that the decision to delay commencement was not made lightly. We know how important commencement is for not only our students and their families, and the entire university community. Commencement is a celebration recognizing years of sacrifice and hard work. Because of the importance, we are committed to moving forward with a ceremony as soon as prudent under the current circumstances.
