2020 Spring All University Commencement Ceremony

Spring 2020 Commencement ceremonies have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Spring graduates will be recognized in a combined graduation weekend in conjunction with the fall ceremony set for Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020. Depending on the number of spring graduates interested in participating in the fall graduation ceremonies, an additional ceremony could be added on Friday, Dec. 18, 2020.

Students who had applied to graduate this spring will be contacted by the registrar's office regarding their attendance at fall commencement. A message will go to the student's university email account and will be posted on the University of Arkansas Graduation app, which can be downloaded on Google Play or Apple devices. Students will be asked to respond regarding their plans to attend.

The university will also recognize spring graduates online in May as part of an enhanced website. The same commencement information that would have been printed in the program book next to each recipient's name will be included as a part of an online directory currently being developed. Additional details will be released in the coming weeks.

Students who plan to graduate in Spring 2020 still need to complete all degree requirements no later than May 7. In addition, graduate students must submit their thesis or dissertation by May 1. The submission process has been modified to allow for digital submissions but the deadline has not changed.  Graduate students can see procedure changes on the graduation checklist for Spring 2020.
