Spring commencement ceremonies are scheduled to be held in the Knapp Center and Drake Stadium the weekend of Friday, May 14–Sunday, May 16. All graduates and guests will be required to wear face coverings in line with campus policies and practice social distancing, and guest attendance will be limited. Face coverings must be worn at all times, regardless of your commencement ceremony’s location. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 case data and adhere to all local, state, and national guidelines regarding gatherings and if necessary, we will adjust our plans accordingly to maintain the safety of our graduates, guests, faculty, and staff.
Each graduate will be allowed four guest tickets, which will be seated in a “pod.” Tickets are free, but graduates will be required to sign up for their pod in advance of the ceremony. Graduates will receive an email in April with instructions on how to sign up for a pod. Additional ceremony information is available in the FAQ. Some details are still being finalized and will be added to the FAQ soon.
