Department Graduations

While the campuswide commencement — virtual in spring 2021 — is for all graduates and their families, smaller department graduations occur separately during the spring semester only. However, due to COVID-19, many schools, colleges, and departments are still determining how they will mark your graduation. The list below may not reflect the most current information, so we encourage you to contact your department directly.
