Dear Class of 2020:
It is with deep regret that we are forced to move the December commencement and commissioning ceremonies to a virtual experience. While the Institute remains committed to celebrating the accomplishments of the Class of 2020, we must comply with the recent state mandate limiting gatherings to 250 people.
VMI will produce a virtual commencement ceremony that will be broadcast on 19 December at 11 a.m. via vmi.edu. Each member of the Class of 2020, whether they were scheduled to graduate in May, September, or December, will be recognized during the virtual ceremony. Details on commissioning ceremonies for each of the ROTC branches will be forthcoming.
Though we are not able to offer our congratulations in person at this time, the Institute remains hopeful that there will be an opportunity in the future if there be interest among the class to do so.
Thank you for your understanding.
