Spring 2020 Commencement/Awarding of M.D. Degree
In response to the closure of university campuses throughout the state of South Carolina and the transition to virtual delivery of curriculum through the end of spring semester, UofSC President Bob Caslen announced that traditional May commencement ceremonies will be postponed. The university is committed to and actively exploring options for rescheduled, in-person ceremonies when it is safe to host them and will be planning experiences for graduates to celebrate their achievements. This change will not impact the degree completion status of those students who were scheduled to graduate in May.
The University of South Carolina 2020 Commencement for MD graduates will be held at the Koger Center for the Arts on the UofSC Columbia campus. The UofSC School of Medicine Greenville will join this celebration for our Class of 2020 graduates. A rescheduled date will be announced soon.
M.D. graduates will be individually recognized when called for hooding. Students will assemble in the large rehearsal room for robing, instructions for the ceremony and assembly in the processional line.
This event is open to family, friends, faculty and staff.
Faculty are encouraged to attend. Those wishing to march in the procession and recession will assemble at the appointed time in the large rehearsal room for robing in regalia. If not robed, faculty are welcome to attend and sit with the audience.
