General Information

We don’t yet know when postponed ceremonies will take place or in what format, but we will provide graduates with at least a months notice when they are scheduled. FSU student email accounts will remain activated through that time, so please continue to check them for messages. We will also announce any further details on FSU social media and here on our website.

For those who cannot make it to a rescheduled ceremony, but who still wish to walk in commencement, you may join in any of the subsequent commencements through 2022. Your position in the 2020 or 2021 graduating class will be announced at that ceremony. You only need to notify us at commencement@frostburg.edu, preferably a month before the ceremony you have chosen. 

Students have worked very hard for this achievement and have prevailed under difficult conditions…we look forward to celebrating them and their hard work!

Please continue to check your FSU email account for further updates and instructions.
