DETROIT (WXYZ) — Wayne State University is postponing its spring commencement ceremonies to restrict the spread of COVID-19.
"Know that this news is as disappointing to us as it is to you," the university said in a statement.
Due to the large number of attendees that typically attend commencement, along with government restrictions on larger gatherings, WSU says it felt it had no choice.
Students who have fulfilled their requirements will still receive their degrees.
The Wayne State School of Medicine and Wayne Law have different academic calendars and different commencement dates.
WSU canceled classes until March 23 amid the outbreak.
