We are very disappointed to share the news that commencement ceremonies will not take place as scheduled in May due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

While commencement won’t be happening in person in May this year, we absolutely understand the importance of Commencement at Illinois.

Diplomas will be mailed, and we are actively exploring options for a rescheduled in-person ceremony when it is safe to do so and planning experiences for our graduates in the coming weeks to celebrate their achievements.

What we want you to know for certain:

#ILLINOIS2020, we hear you. We want to celebrate you, not just at graduation, but every day. We will do everything we can to ensure this is a special time for you and your families.

As soon as we know more, we will announce details via email and on
