Update on spring commencement and summer courses

Summer courses to remain virtual

To provide time for faculty, staff and students to effectively prepare, FPU will continue summer 2021 courses in the same virtual format as spring courses have been. Since university campuses are in four different counties, each of which has different local guidelines and may be on different tiers in the state system, holding all summer courses virtually will allow for consistency at all campuses. Primarily face-to-face instruction is still planned for all campuses beginning in the fall semester.

Spring Commencement

Spring commencement will be held virtually on Saturday, May 8, 2021. Although the day will feel different than any other commencement, there is still great meaning in the time of celebration. Please visit fpu.edu/commencement2021 for additional details pertaining to commencement.
