Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Baker College has made the difficult decision to postpone our on-ground commencement ceremony honoring graduates from the Class of 2020. Congratulating students on completing a challenging and fulfilling academic journey is the highlight of each school year. We're deeply saddened that we are not able to do so in person this year.
However, we're not going to let anything prevent us from celebrating the hard work of our graduates. We're excited to announce a virtual commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020! Now, more than ever, let's show our family, friends, and community exactly what it means to be BakerProud! This year's virtual ceremony will be broadcast via our Baker College YouTube channel on Sunday, June 14th, 2020, at 1:00 p.m.
We understand that no virtual celebration can replace our traditional commencement ceremony. Still, we're working hard to ensure this event gives every Baker College Class of 2020 graduate the honor and respect their accomplishments deserve! Additionally, we invite all Class of 2020 graduates to participate in the May 2021 commencement ceremony.
We look forward to celebrating with you (virtually) on June 14th!
Your diploma should arrive approximately 6 to 8 weeks after your final semester ends as long as you do not have a financial obligation with the College. You can also order your official transcripts any time on the Registrar Page at my.baker.edu.
Students who anticipate completing a degree or certificate program during the spring or summer 2020 semesters and have not already completed a Graduation Application should do so immediately! For detailed information on graduation requirements, diplomas, and more, visit the Ceremony Information page on My Baker.
