IUPUI is hopeful that within the context of public health guidance at that time, we will be able to host our graduates and their guests in person and recognize you at the May 2021 Commencement. If you earned your degree in fall 2019 or anytime in 2020, you are also cordially invited to participate in this occasion. IUPUI Commencement 2021 is being planned to honor all who graduated (or will graduate) in December 2019, any month of 2020, and spring and summer 2021. Tentative details:
When: Saturday, May 15, 2021, 10 a.m. The ceremony will last approximately two hours.
Where: Lucas Oil Stadium, 500 S. Capitol Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46225
Who to invite: Invite as many family members and friends as you wish. IUPUI Commencement is free and open to the public. There are no tickets.
What to expect: Commencement is rich in tradition and pageantry. The ceremony includes the procession of the platform party, Commencement speakers, the hooding of doctoral graduates, and the conferral of degrees. All graduates stand and are recognized together by their school deans, but except for doctoral graduates, their names are not announced individually, as they number in the thousands.
