Event Information

Reynolds Community College prioritizes the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. As such the college will follow guidance from Governor Ralph Northam concerning non-essential gatherings of more than 10 people until further notice. We offer some specific guidance on previously-scheduled and upcoming Reynolds events below.



On March 17, Chancellor Glen DuBois of the Virginia Community College System announced the cancellation of all May Commencement Ceremonies, including Reynolds. This decision was made in the interest of the health of graduates and their families. We know that many of you have poured your hearts, sweat, and time into earning a degree or certificate. Please know that we will honor our 2020 graduates and their achievements when it is safe and appropriate to do so.


Nursing Spring Pinning Ceremony

As with the decision to cancel the May commencement ceremony, the decision has been made to cancel the May 6, 2020 Nursing Pinning ceremony. This is sad news for all of the nursing faculty and staff. We love to see you receive your nursing pins and so enjoy celebrating this milestone with you, your family, and friends. Please know we do not make this decision lightly but with the utmost care and concern for your health and that of your families and the Reynolds learning community. Once we have a clearer picture of how we can maintain your health and safety, we will revisit a time to share in the accomplishments of our Spring 2020 Nurse Graduates.


Student Life Events

The Office of Student Life has canceled or postponed all student life events through April 6. An update on the status of events past that date will be provided as soon as more information is known.


Reynolds Open Houses

All Reynolds Open House events scheduled for the month of April have been postponed. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to announce new Open House dates for later this spring or this summer.


School of Nursing & Allied Health Information Sessions

The SHP Information Sessions scheduled for March and April have been canceled.
