Schedule for Spring 2022 graduation ceremonies
Share

The University will be holding the Spring 2022 graduation ceremonies in March for all undergraduate and graduate schools. The ceremonies will be split into multiple sessions over two days to disperse the number of participants per session. As a measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19, only graduating students are invited to attend the ceremony. Prior to attending the ceremony, all graduating students must take their temperature before leaving home. If you have a fever or Covid-19 symptoms, you cannot attend the ceremony in person. 

The Spring 2022 graduation ceremonies will be broadcast online. Graduating students who are feeling unwell or do not feel comfortable coming to campus, as well as guardians, family, and friends of graduating students, etc., may view the ceremonies live online. The ceremonies will not be broadcast live on campus (public viewing) so please view the online broadcast at home. (The link for the live broadcast will be posted on this page closer to the ceremonies’ dates.) 

Note: The date, time, proceedings, and rules of the ceremonies might change due to the status of the Covid-19 pandemic at that time.
