Commencement is a public celebration and recognition of your accomplishments at Indiana University. Whether you are earning a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree, Commencement means you are joining a group of more than 700,000 IU alumni around the world.
Indiana University is hopeful that within the context of public health guidance at that time, we will be able to host our graduates and their guests in person on campus and recognize you at the May 2021 Graduate or Undergraduate Commencement. If you earned your degree in 2020, you’re cordially invited to return to campus and participate in this occasion.
Traditionally, IU Bloomington holds three Commencement ceremonies each year—two in May and one in December. There is no summer ceremony.
