Commencement

Spring 2021 Commencement


Spring Commencement

The University of South Alabama will honor its graduation candidates through individual college commencement ceremonies.  Spring 2021 candidates (bachelor, master, and doctoral) and Summer 2021 candidates for bachelor and master degrees who are not in the College of Nursing* are eligible to attend their college/school’s 2021 Spring Commencement ceremony.  As had been planned after we assessed the positive response to separate college ceremonies prior to COVID-19, there will be no University-wide ceremony.

Each graduating student will be able to invite up to 4 guests to attend their ceremony. These ceremonies will be live-streamed for those who are unable to attend. Students must RSVP with their college/school by April 19 to receive an electronic ticket. Click on the dropdown menu below for the link to your college/school's ceremony website. After April 19, students who RSVP'd will receive an email to provide their guests' information. At the individual college and school ceremonies, students will be recognized by name and receive their diploma covers and have their photos taken. Social distancing protocols will be observed, and guests will be seated with sufficient distance between groups. All attendees, students and guests, will be required to wear a mask at all times while in the Mitchell Center.

Degrees will be conferred to students who meet graduation eligibility. Diplomas will be mailed to students just as they are each fall and spring.

Regalia ordering opened on March 4 and will close on April 4. Please visit Graduate Supply House to order your regalia if you have not done so already. Additional details are posted on the Graduating Students page under the "Caps, Gowns, Hoods and Announcements" tab.

While every attempt will be made to hold commencement as planned, these events are subject to change at any time due to COVID-19 requirements and regulations. Students and guests should plan accordingly, as the University cannot be responsible for changed or canceled travel plans.

We look forward to seeing our graduates at these ceremonies.

*All College of Nursing candidates for Summer 2021 graduation will be recognized in the college's summer convocation ceremony. All Summer 2021 doctoral candidates in other colleges/schools will participate in 2021 Fall Commencement.
