LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) — The class of 2021 at Liberty University will be able to attend a degree presentation for their school or college on the Lynchburg campus, the school announced Thursday.
A news release from the school said individual ceremonies will be held at outdoor locations from Tuesday, May 11, through Saturday, May 15, and will also be available online for those unable to attend in person.
Public health measures will still be in place for all campus events, and the university will monitor any changes to guidelines and restrictions in the coming weeks, according to the news release. Graduates will be notified of updates via email, on the school website and on commencement social media channels.
The move follows word from Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday that some COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted for graduations statewide.
