Class of 2020 School Celebrations with Individual Graduate Recognition

American University’s online school commencement celebrations will be held on December 13, 2020 following the university-wide celebration. All 2020 graduates (May, August, and December) will be individually recognized, as we were not able to offer this opportunity in the spring.
