2021 Commencement Update

In accordance with its COVID-19 protocols, Indiana University Bloomington is planning in-person May Commencement ceremonies at all of its campuses for graduates only. Details for attending Commencement and having family and friends join virtually will be shared soon. Please let us know your interest in attending.

Are you interested in attending in-person?

The COVID-19 pandemic and public health restrictions on large gatherings made traditional in-person IU Commencement activities impossible through the end of 2020. If you earned your degree in 2020, you’re cordially invited to return to campus and participate in this occasion. If you’ll be completing requirements by the end of summer 2021, these events will honor you as well. Details, including information about dates, times, locations, and rented caps and gowns, are being posted to this website on an ongoing basis.
