Summer Commencement

Saturday, August 8

In late April when we announced in-person graduation ceremonies for August 7-8, Georgia seemed to be cresting the wave of the coronavirus. With hospitals at capacity for caring for acutely ill patients, and with predictions that the virus rates would be very low by the first of August, few of us imagined that the wave would continue for three more months. But now we are facing record numbers of cases, and hospitals are filling up once again. For that reason, we have cancelled plans for in-person graduation ceremonies on August 7-8.

We have taken this action out of an abundance of caution, considering the safety of our graduates, their friends and family, and the safety of our faculty and staff who will greet new students the following week.

  • Saturday, August 8, at 10am. President Fowler, Provost Blake, and MBA/M.Ed. program directors will hold an interactive virtual commencement ceremony for graduate students via Zoom. Program faculty and staff are encouraged to attend. Additional information will follow.
  • Saturday, August 8, at 1pm. President Fowler and Provost Blake will hold a virtual commencement ceremony for undergraduate August completers, including students from Wesleyan College of Guangzhou University. The ceremony will be broadcast on Wesleyan’s YouTube Channel and will also be available afterwards at https://www.youtube.com/user/WesleyanCollegeGA.  
Classes Begin on Campus

August 17
Since March, Wesleyan faculty and staff have been preparing to welcome each other and our students back to campus to start classes on August 17. We have attended virtual workshops, studied CDC guidelines, and prepared the campus with the safety and health of our community foremost in our minds. Our COVID-19 task force has developed guidelines for employees and students, social distancing, face coverings, class instruction, COVID testing, athletics, new cleaning procedures, and more. These guidelines have been studied and approved by the president and Cabinet, and they are posted below for your information. Continue to check this page for current COVID back to campus policies.
