~Cancellation of the 2019 Academic Year Commencement Ceremony~



Yamaguchi University has decided not to hold the commencement ceremony for the 2019 academic year, which was originally scheduled for March 24, 2020.


The university had been considering minimizing the scale of the ceremony, securing measures against the infectious disease. However, the situation demanded cancellation due to the nationwide coronavirus spread. 
We would greatly appreciate it if you would understand that the university made a difficult decision based on the government’s policy to protect the people’s lives and health.


We will post the information about how to receive your graduation certificates/diplomas on this website later.  President’s congratulatory message will also be accessible on this website from March 24, 2020.
