Angry students blast U-M Dearborn's decision to cancel winter commencement

No plans announced to institute same changes at U-M Ann Arbor

DEARBORN, Mich. – Angry students are blasting the University of Michigan-Dearborn’s decision to cancel winter commencement in favor of having only one spring ceremony.  

UPDATE: UM Dearborn reverses decision to cancel winter commencement

Officials from the college say the move would lead to substantial savings and a lot of money that will be used for financial aid and other student resources. 

Many students who are upset say they took summer classes and made plans for a winter commencement ceremony.  

No plans have been announced to institute the same changes at the University of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus.
