Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus and the public health recommendations that come with it, Arizona State University will be celebrating with its graduates in the 2020 Spring commencement in a virtual, online ceremony. The format may be different, but our enthusiasm for celebration has never been more inspired and we encourage you to join us in honoring ASU graduate and undergraduate students the week of May 11. Planning is underway. For more details, please check back here for updates and additional information about online activities. Commencement FAQ page
Update: Thursday April 2, 2020
New College Convocation for undergraduate and graduates will occur online on Thursday, May 12 at a time to be announced. The ceremony will stream on YouTube.
Will in-person ceremonies be offered?
Yes. In addition to the virtual ceremonies, graduates will have the opportunity to attend the December 2020 or the Spring 2021 ceremonies of their choice.
Do I need to register to participate in convocation (school/college ceremonies)?
Graduates will submit a single registration for both the university commencement and the New College convocation event. If you would like to include your personal message along with a photo, you will need to complete the Virtual Graduation Registration. Students will receive information and a registration link sent to their asu.edu email address on Monday, April 6.
