With high vaccination rates and improved COVID conditions, the State of Rhode Island has recently announced plans to curtail some public health related restrictions and requirements. This means that we can allow guests, along with the graduates and the platform party, under the Commencement tent. In alignment with new guidance released by the CDC, if you are fully vaccinated you are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or outdoors.
Please return to this page for updates regarding safety protocols that will be in effect throughout the Commencement ceremonies.
- Graduates and guests will be socially distanced and seated following guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and the RI Department of Health.
- All surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized between ceremonies.
- Hand sanitizers will be available at multiple locations throughout campus.
