1. Summer Commencement will no longer take place
Georgia Tech is discontinuing our Summer Commencement ceremonies. Degrees will still be awarded, but for those who want to walk in Commencement, they will be asked to do so in the subsequent fall ceremony. We have all the information posted here – http://www.gatech.edu/commencement/future-commencement-dates if anyone has questions. Faculty will be notified today; students later today or tomorrow. I wanted to tell you, in case it affects someone’s registration process this fall.
2. All ceremonies will now be ticketed
This will affect our undergrads the most, as they will receive fewer tickets. We will email all fall grads on Sept. 4 to inform them of the changes, but just so you know, most likely the fall grads will receive 6 tickets and they MUST RSVP on the Commencement site to be granted tickets.
If you have any questions, please let me know. All comments and questions about the cancellation, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
