In-Person Commencement Ceremonies

submitted by

Like the Class of 2020, the Class of 2021 will have a virtual commencement ceremony open to all, scheduled for the evening of May 3, 2021. However, with the increasing pace of vaccinations and the relaxing of public health limitations on events, we are now able to contemplate the best way to celebrate graduations face-to-face as well.

Based on survey results from our graduates, the majority of the Class of 2021 prefers to have an in-person ceremony soon, with limited guests, masking, and mandatory physical distancing. The majority of the Class of 2020 prefers waiting until spring of 2022 in hopes that fewer restrictions will be in place by that time.

For the Class of 2020, we will share more as plans come together and dates are confirmed to ensure you and your guests have time to plan for next year’s celebration.

The Class of 2021 ceremony has been scheduled for June 8, 2021, at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Updates will be shared with graduates and added to the Augsburg commencement webpage when details become available.
