DIFS March Announcements
College Communication: Current students will need to be diligent in checking for any updates to schedules, etc. All updates will be communicated primarily via college assigned .edu email addresses. Announcements will be placed on the website.
Commencement: Dallas Institute of Funeral Service will be postponing Commencement that is scheduled for March 27, 2020. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised that community-based interventions such as social distancing and event canceling can help slow the spread of COVID-19. In an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Spring Commencement on March 27, 2020. This decision was not made lightly, and we want to emphasize that we believe that taking this precaution is in the best interests of all who would have attended. While we are disappointed to have to change plans for Spring Commencement, we plan to have an even larger celebration on September 25th with both Spring and Summer graduates in attendance.
Finals, Boot Camp, Comps, and Clinicals: These were scheduled for various dates between March 16-25 and will not be canceled. However, there will be a change to the schedule to minimize the amount of time spent on campus. Current students need to check their dallasinstitute.edu email for updates to the schedule.
Important - All Dallas Institute Students: As a reminder all students who are scheduled for On-Ground Comps or Final Exams that will NOT be attending, the college will be accommodating testing at another scheduled time with no penalties.
