Postponed from May 2020

A Message from President Turner


We are looking forward to celebrating you and your graduation on August 15, 2020!

We are busily planning the weekend events and plans will be finalized in the coming weeks. Once plans are finalized, they will be posted to this website. Candidates, please look for a message in your SMU email account in a couple of weeks alerting you that this website is updated.

Conferring of Degrees, Final Transcripts and Diplomas

Although the ceremony is moving, your degree will still be conferred on SMU’s original Commencement date, May 16, 2020, so you can begin your new job on time or send a final transcript to graduate schools. Final transcripts listing your degree(s) are scheduled to be available May 29, 2020. Diplomas are scheduled to be mailed on June 19, 2020.

Regalia Information

Details will be forthcoming on regalia orders for August or regalia refunds for students unable to attend the August ceremony.
