Colorado Convention Center, Exhibit Hall A

Fall 2021 graduate names will be announced, diploma covers will be presented, and graduates will cross the stage. Because crossing a stage and having pictures taken is important to our graduates, we’ve also invited anyone who graduated in 2020 (when we had virtual-only ceremonies) to join the in-person celebration as well. Faculty are asked to register for the commencement ceremony, even if regalia is not needed. Registering ensures that enough seating is provided on stage and allows us to contact you with pertinent information about the ceremony. The ceremony will be livestreamed and recorded for faculty and staff who can't attend. All the details about viewing will be available on the Commencement Homepage.

University safety protocols will be enforced during the event:

  • Wear a face covering at all times when inside the Convention Center (face shields are not permitted). Graduates can remove their mask briefly for one photo at the bottom of the stage ramp, but must immediately put it back on after.
  • Adhere to physical distancing between individuals not in the same household/pod. Graduates will be sat together during the ceremony.
