BLOOMINGTON — Indiana University announced Friday that all May commencement ceremonies will be postponed, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

IU says that all degrees earned will be rewarded, as the change of plans will not impact future graduates from being awarded their diplomas and certificates.

"I know that our students are working incredibly hard to reach this milestone, and those who earn an IU degree deserve to be celebrated with their friends, professors, families and loved ones," IU President, Michael A. McRobbie, said. "We are especially saddened to have to postpone this year's ceremonies, as these students will be the bicentennial graduating class and the first in IU's third century."
