Commencement at the Cross Center

Commencement 2020

A Message to the Class of 2020 and the Husson University Community

Dear Students,

As you know, the ongoing disruptions from COVID 19 have required Husson University to postpone this year’s live commencement exercise. Instead of holding the event on Saturday, May 9 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine as originally planned, the event has been rescheduled to take place at the same location on Sunday, October 18, 2020.

We understand that many of you, and your families, may be eager to begin celebrating your academic achievements at the conclusion of the semester. To assist you in this effort, Husson University is preparing a NESCom-produced video presentation.  On or before May 15, a link to the graduation video will be emailed to you and posted on the Husson website.

This video will include:

  • Remarks from the President
  • Remarks from Husson University’s Board of Trustees Chair
  • Recognition of the valedictorians and salutatorian
  • The full list of all graduates, their honorary titles and hometowns accompanied by appropriate commencement music. 

We encourage you to watch this presentation and enjoy this celebration of your academic achievements in the safety of your home with your loved ones.

The timetable associated with diploma processing is currently on schedule. The diploma will be mailed to your home address. You should receive it by the end of May.

Your regalia will be sent to your home address by a Husson University vendor, as soon as it is available. Please save the robe, mortarboard and any honor cords you receive. You will need this regalia when you cross the stage at the live commencement exercise on October 18.

Your ability to complete your degree requirements, despite the disruptions caused by a global pandemic, demonstrates the fortitude and perseverance necessary to achieve career success. Everyone at Husson University is incredibly proud of the Class of 2020.
