Spring Commencement will take place Friday and Saturday, May 7 and 8, 2021.
Current plans include a ceremony for graduates receiving master’s and doctoral degrees on the evening of Friday, May 7. Undergraduate degrees will be conferred Saturday, May 8, at three separate ceremonies. All events will take place at the Kovalchick
Convention and Athletic Complex.
Because of gathering limits, each graduate will receive two tickets for guests. All others are encouraged to watch via livestream.
Commencement ceremonies are being planned according to current Centers for Disease Control guidelines with regard to gathering and capacity limits. However, new information about the status of the virus or new guidelines from state officials could cause
plans to change. If that were to happen, the Commencement Committee would notify everyone involved as soon as possible.
Visit the tickets page to find details on ticketing and distribution.
