Honors, Graduates and Candidates
The list of graduates is as accurate as possible. However, because of production deadlines, names of some degree recipients may not appear, while names of degree candidates may appear even though they have not completed their degree requirements. The University’s official registry for conferral of degrees is the Office of the Registrar, 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, IL 61801.
Those of the past send greetings
Several Illinois alumni board members and awardees share congratulatory messages and words of wisdom to new Illinois graduates.
As you take your next steps, remember the familiar Illinois orange and blue is never far away.
Note about large in-person ceremony
We absolutely understand the importance of Commencement at Illinois. In the graduation cycle when it is safe to resume large, in-person gatherings, we still intend to invite graduates from 2020 and 2021 to participate in an on-campus ceremony at Memorial Stadium.
