Class of 2020
In May, we announced Transylvania would hold an in‑person graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. We hoped to be able to accomplish this in early September but have not yet set a date for the event. We continue to monitor guidance from the state on public gatherings, and, given the current guidelines, we do not believe we would be able to safely accommodate a large ceremony on campus with hundreds of guests from across the country early this fall. We will continue to look for the best and safest options to celebrate our most recent graduates.
Transylvania University held a public virtual commencement celebration on May 23. More information on how to view the celebration is below.

Hail, Transylvania, thine own are we,
Our hearts in loyal love we pledge to thee;
True to thy crimson flag thro’ all our days,
Hail, Transylvania! we sing thy praise.
First in the West to rise, seeker of truth,
May He who guides above renew thy youth;
Far thro’ the coming years, firm in the right,
Hail, Transylvania! pass on thy light.
