Orange County colleges, universities have mixed plans for graduations in person, more plan fall returns to campus

At UC Irvine, Cal State Fullerton, Irvine Valley College and Orange Coast College, ceremonies will be virtual. … UCI’s walks, which will take place over a few days after the June 12 virtual commencement ceremony, will also include graduates who weren’t able to get a moment on stage last year. … UC Irvine is also planning to be back fully in person by the fall quarter, which starts later than most schools, said Michael Dennin, vice provost and dean of the undergraduate division. … “The plan is all done in the context of not where we are now in terms of health, but where everything is predicting us to be in terms of health,” Dennin said.
