Bay postpones commencement

ESCANABA — Bay College is postponing spring commencement ceremonies until the end of Summer II Semester in early August or Fall Semester in early December 2020.

Details will be forthcoming as the national and state COVID-19 emergency unfolds, officials said.

Bay College remains fully functional with courses moved online and support services operating remotely via online virtual services, by email and phone.

“Bay is fortunate that an IT infrastructure and online learning tools were put in place prior to the coronavirus pandemic,” said Dr. Laura Coleman, college president. “Over 70% of Bay College students have taken at least one online class so most have experience in the online environment. All at Bay College look forward to celebrating a memorable commencement with our graduating students at a later date,” she said.
