We are pleased to be able to offer in-person commencement ceremonies for our graduates. Many aspects of the ceremony will be the same. However, given the ongoing pandemic, some aspects of our ceremony will need to be different this year. We ask your assistance in the following to help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
Students will process onto the field.
The ceremony will have speakers, conferral of degrees and a traditional stage crossing by each student. Physical distancing will be maintained during all aspects of the ceremony.
GradImages is the official photographer for our commencement ceremonies. (See PHOTOGRAPHS section for more information). We ask that guests remain in their pods during commencement, refraining from coming towards the stage at any time during the ceremony.
The departure from Makuvek Field will be led by the Faculty Marshals, the Presidential Party, and the Faculty. Once the Faculty have cleared, Student Marshals will dismiss graduates by row and graduates must exit out of Makuvek Field. No photographs will be allowed on the field. Guests must meet their graduates outside of Makuvek Field: no exceptions. We recommend you have a prearranged meeting location with your graduate.
