SANTA FE, N.M. — Commencement for those graduating from Santa Fe Community College could look dramatically different this year.
The college announced it would remain closed following its week-long Spring Break starting March 23, with the campus set to remain closed until April 6 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
However, administrators are bracing for the possibility that closures could extend far beyond that deadline.
“I would say there’s a high likelihood that this is going to continue beyond that April 6 date,” SFCC President Rebecca Rowley said on Friday.
The possibility of extended closures has put into doubt the future of the college’s spring commencement ceremony, which is currently scheduled for May 16.
