Commencement


This is a big moment. Let’s share it.

Graduation is the culmination of years of hard work, where students reach their academic goals. Before they set off for future successes, we take time to celebrate their accomplishment. Through this site, you can join Commencement ceremonies as they take place live, revisit previous ceremonies, and look at profiles of graduates.

Review Commencement information

In the process of earning your Indiana University degrees, you remained dedicated to your studies in spite of the enormous challenges presented by the COVID-19 global pandemic. You brought spirit and life to our campuses, even though the final months of your time at IU were very different from the traditional IU experience. And you embraced your new responsibilities with a combination of courage, resilience, kindness, and an unwavering concern for others, making us all enormously proud.”

President Michael A. McRobbie
