There are moments that define your future
This is yours.
Spring 2021 Virtual Ceremony Information Sunday, June 6, 2021 at 10 am PT
As the coronavirus pandemic continues, it appears that federal and state guidelines regarding social distancing will continue at least through the spring of this year. We estimate that the spring commencement would attract over 8,000 graduates and guests. Given that the health and safety of our graduates, their families, and our staff are of the utmost concern, the University of Arizona Global Campus leadership has decided to cancel the in-person ceremony. Instead, the spring commencement will take place virtually on June 6, 2021, at 10 am PST.
We recognize that this is not how you imagined celebrating your commencement. Commencement is a special occasion to celebrate the hard work and academic achievement of every graduate and the University of Arizona Global Campus Commencement Committee is focused on creating a special experience that celebrates and acknowledges all your hard work.
The Spring 2021 Commencement Ceremony will be held Sunday, June 6, 2021.
Location: Virtual Ceremony
Time: Start at 10:00 am PT
Link to Ceremony: TBD
