SUNY Buffalo State officials have postponed all spring 2020 commencement ceremonies, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

President Katherine Conway-Turner informed students of the news Tuesday afternoon in an email.

The ceremonies were originally scheduled for the third weekend in May. Officials would not say when they will be rescheduled for, or what form they could take.

“I wish I could provide you with a specific date and format now, but given the anticipated progression of the public health crisis we face, it would be premature to select a new date at this time. We will continue to evaluate information as we receive it and communicate a decision once we can better assess the situation,” Conway-Turner said in the email.

The University at Buffalo made the same decision later Tuesday afternoon.
