Purdue University’s in-person spring commencement ceremonies have been officially cancelled.
In a letter to students Tuesday, Purdue President Mitch Daniels said plans were underway to create a virtual ceremony. The school was scheduled to hold six graduations between May 15 and May 17 at Elliott Hall of Music, which contains seating for just over 6,000 people.
Daniels also said students would have the chance to participate in a more traditional graduation in the future.
On Monday, the university announced that in-person classes at Purdue would not resume for the remainder of the school year.
