Graduation

In response to the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, UVA Final Exercises and Darden Graduation weekend events for the Class of 2020 will not take place as originally planned. Check this page for updates on alternative graduation plans and Darden’s coronavirus webpage for the latest information and resources from the School.

Important Graduation Update for the Class of 2020

In light of the evidence about the likely progression of COVID-19 and when it will peak, UVA Final Exercises and Darden Graduation weekend activities, previously scheduled for 16–17 May, will not take place as planned.

The University of Virginia did not make this decision lightly, and Dean Scott Beardsley, the Darden faculty and staff know how disappointing this decision is for graduating students and their families. The Darden School is working with UVA to develop creative alternatives to mark this important occasion for the Class of 2020, which includes holding Final Exercises and Darden Graduation at a later date. UVA and Darden will communicate updates directly to the graduating Class of 2020 as decisions are made in the coming weeks.
 
The School’s top priority is the safety of students, members of the Darden and local communities, visitors, and guests. Find more information on UVA's response to COVID-19 on the University’s coronavirus website.
