Important Information for Graduating Students

All students eligible for the Spring 2021 commencement are invited to participate in the May 2021 commencement ceremony.

Guests of students who are participating in the in-person Commencement ceremony in Lakewood on May 8 must present guest tickets for entry into Jeffco Stadium. In consideration of state and local COVID-19 restrictions, four guest tickets per graduating student in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS), and five guest tickets per graduating student in the College of Undergraduate Studies (CUS), have been allocated.

Students who attend the in-person ceremony will have their names announced as they walk across the stage and receive their diploma covers. Students who participate in the virtual commencement ceremony will also have their names announced along with a showing of their personalized graduation slide. The registration period for attending the in-person or virtual ceremony is now past.

Students will check in at Fletcher Miller School, immediately south of Jeffco Stadium. We encourage guests to drop off graduating students at Fletcher Miller School for check-in. Please review this map for further instructions. Students should wear their caps and gowns to the ceremony. Master’s and Doctoral students should wear their hoods to the ceremony.
