In-Person Commencement Ceremonies Planned for May 2021

Posted on 3/16/2021 9:43:47 AM

This week, the Commencement Committee announced plans to move forward with in-person commencement ceremonies for May and August 2021 graduates.

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 up to five 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. 

Additional details about ceremony times and ticket distribution are forthcoming. Find the latest news on the Commencement website

We look forward to honoring May and August 2021 graduates.
