December 2021 Commencement

A Commencement for fall term graduates

The December Commencement ceremony, also known as Winter Commencement, is scheduled for Saturday, December 18, at 10 a.m. in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, 1001 E. 17th Street. It is open to all candidates for undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Candidates for Ph.D.’s and other doctorates will be introduced during the ceremony, and, if public health guidelines permit, they will be hooded on the floor in front of the stage. Candidates for all undergraduate and master’s degrees will be introduced by school, but will not be individually introduced.

The ceremony will last about 90 minutes.

You do not need tickets, and there are no reserved seats. You may invite as many guests as you wish.

Determine your eligibility

You are eligible to graduate at the 2021 Winter Commencement if you are an undergraduate or graduate student who will complete the requirements for graduation during the fall term of 2021.

Candidates completing degree requirements during the spring or summer term participate in May Commencement. There is no summer ceremony.
