The Missouri Valley College administration has announced the cancellation of the 2020 commencement ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic and the safety of our campus community and guests.

The May commencement had been rescheduled to October 10, 2020 at 2 p.m., and now the fall ceremony will not take place. 2020 graduates will have the opportunity to walk in the May 2021 commencement ceremony.

“We are saddened to have to make the difficult decision to cancel the rescheduled 2020 commencement ceremony,” said Dr. Bonnie Humphrey, MVC president. “The Class of 2020 has endured so much during their final year at MVC, and we are proud of their commitment to finishing strong. We proudly welcome them to the ranks of Viking alumni despite not being able to have a traditional ceremony.”

December 2019 and May 2020 diplomas, caps and gowns have already been mailed to graduates. Summer graduates can expect to receive their diplomas, caps and gowns around mid-August.

The College plans for face-to-face classes this fall with a modified academic calendar that was previously announced. The fall semester will begin Aug. 20 and conclude on Nov. 24.
