Hollins’ 178th Commencement Exercises have been rescheduled for Sunday, September 6, during the Labor Day Weekend. Baccalaureate will take place the day before, along with other festivities to honor the class of 2020. Should the progression of the pandemic make that date not possible or safe, we will hold the ceremony during next year’s Memorial Day weekend on May 30, 2021. Additional details will follow.

*All graduates should plan to meet on Back Quad no later than 9:15 a.m.
* Dogs may be brought onto the Hollins campus in exterior spaces if they remain under the immediate physical control of their owner or custodian. However, because some participants or audience members may be allergic to or afraid of dogs and we want to ensure that commencement is a positive experience for everyone, bringing a dog to commencement is discouraged with the exception of guide, signal, and service dogs used by disabled persons in accordance with the Virginia Health and Safety Code. A complete animal policy for the campus can be obtained here.
