Congratulations on your achievement, Hornets!

Important May 2020 Commencement Announcement

We sincerely regret that the May 2020 Emporia State commencements have been canceled. Following CDC guidelines, Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly has prohibited all public or private mass gathering of 50 or more people into May. Because of this, Emporia State will cancel all commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 8 and 9. This includes the nurse pinning ceremony.

We know how very disappointing this is for our graduates and their families. We are exploring alternate methods to celebrate your academic achievements in meaningful ways and will communicate details when we have them.
