Update - March 25th

For the health and safety of our students and community, and in light of new government regulations limiting travel and other activities, we are saddened to announce the postponement of our May 9 Commencement Ceremony. A new date will be set when it is safe to do so.

Every year, HPU students, families, faculty and staff look forward to celebrating this important day, so this decision has been particularly difficult - but, given the rapidly changing circumstances around the world, it was the only one we could make to protect the well-being of our entire ’ohana.

To the spring Class of 2020 – we know how significant this milestone is to you, your families and friends. Hawai’i Pacific University is deeply committed to honoring your hard work and accomplishments. We began this journey together just a few years ago when you joined our international learning community, and although you’re not able to walk this spring, you are no less a proud alum of HPU. We celebrate your achievements, we congratulate you on your successful journey through this stage in your life, and we promise to be here for your next steps. As soon as it’s possible to safely resume events, we will announce a rescheduled graduation ceremony for you.
