The University of Arizona Global Campus Fall 2023 Virtual Commencement Ceremony is coming, and we couldn’t be more thrilled for our hard-working graduates. To make sure it’s an unforgettable event, we’re putting together a full virtual experience that will be sure to please. Details will be shared in the weeks leading up to the big day on Saturday, October 21, 2023. Be sure to check our Graduation Ceremony Information Page to learn more and how you and your friends and family can join in the celebration. In the meantime, to help you prepare in advance, we’ve compiled a checklist you can reference to keep track of everything you should do ahead of the event. After all, celebrating from wherever you are takes planning, too.

Take a look at our Pinterest board for ideas on how you can join in the fun, and then use live stream to watch the ceremony. More to come on the link to live stream. Stay Tuned!

Check these items off your to-do list, and you’ll be sure to have a stress-free and safe time celebrating your achievements with friends and family.
