Graduation Day

2020 Virtual Commencement 


Commencement is a time we enjoy celebrating with you.  While our current circumstances prevent us from celebrating as we have in the past, we are pleased to honor you at the virtual commencement ceremony.  We are committed to recognizing your accomplishments. When it is safe to do so, we will follow guidance from state and federal health care experts to announce future dates and plans.

The virtual commencement ceremony here will be accessible online until the end of July 2020.  

The theme for the celebration is “Hail to Thee!” a reference from Minnesota’s state song chosen to reflect the University’s admiration for your incredible resilience in these stressful times.

Students from the School of Fine Arts may find their name card under School of Fine Arts or College of Fine Arts. 

We apologize for the inconsistency.

Assuming all graduation requirements have been met, diplomas are mailed to students within three months following the end of the semester in which a student applied to graduate. Holds may prevent you from ordering a transcript or receiving your diploma.  Check MyU for any holds on your record.  All diplomas are the same size.
