UCF officials said the school will be unable to host in-person ceremonies for fall graduates.

School officials said they are exploring ideas on how to improve fall commencement and will share updates down the road.

UCF officials said cap and gown rentals will continue to be available for students who want to take graduate photos.

The school said Herff Jones will refund any student who wants to cancel their cap and gown order.
