Spring 2021 Commencement

Thursday & Friday, May 13-14 at JQH Arena

All ceremonies will be modified to accommodate COVID‑19 protocols. Each graduate can invite up to 4 guests. These limits are based on JQH Arena capacity. We're asking graduates to follow these rules so everyone has the chance to celebrate with their guests.

Ceremonies will not be ticketed, nor will guests be required to RSVP.

We look forward to celebrating with all of our #BearGrads.
