2021 Commencement Date Change

Dear Champlain College Online Community,

We are contacting you to let you know that due to COVID-19 related scheduling changes that affect Champlain College’s on-campus community, Commencement Exercises for the Class of 2021 will take place on Saturday, May 15, 2021, one week later than originally scheduled.

Our planning team is considering a wide range of options for a memorable ceremony and recognition of the Class of 2021. We do not expect to make any firm decisions or announcements about Commencement until the spring semester is underway.In order to remain flexible, we ask that families and friends do not make any non-refundable plans to travel to Vermont until we can share more about the format of the ceremony and the latest State of Vermont travel guidelines, should an in-person event be possible.

There are no other scheduling changes at this time that affect the Champlain College Online community. The spring start date for Champlain College Online Classes is still scheduled for January 11, 2021. Please continue to take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.

Warm regards,

Johnna Herrick-Phelps, Ph.D.
Assistant Provost
Champlain College Online
