Due to increasing cases of coronavirus and public health concerns, Boise State has made the decision to cancel events with large public gatherings through the end of the year, including the Winter Commencement. 

Boise State President Marlene Tromp said in a statement, “I know that this will be a truly heartbreaking loss for our students who have worked so hard to achieve their goals as well as for their faculty, friends and family who long to celebrate these accomplishments, and I grieve that with all my heart.”

Boise State invites all spring, summer and winter 2020 graduates to participate in an online ceremony on December 19. The university continues to plan for an in-person spring 2021 commencement ceremony with health precautions and safety guidelines.
