Convocation 2020

Students Preparing for Convocation

2020 University of Illinois Commencement and departmental graduation convocations will not take place as scheduled in May due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Diplomas will be mailed, and we are exploring possible alternatives such as rescheduling and/or hosting virtual events to honor the Class of 2020. We will update this page as information becomes available.


Please join us for a university-wide online Commencement celebration on Saturday, May 16, at noon (12 p.m.), U.S. Central Time. There is no need to register for the virtual event, which is expected to last around 15 minutes.
