Commencement Frequently Asked Questions

Spring 2020 - Due to Covid-19, the University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees have made the difficult decision to postpone indefinitely all spring 2020 commencements ceremonies at all UA System schools. UAFS is committed to providing our spring 2020 graduates with an opportunity to celebrate this major accomplishment. Details about future plans will be posted here as soon as decisions are made. Spring 2020 graduates will be invited to participate in a future commencement ceremony.


Students who have met all of the requirements of their degrees at the conclusion of the spring 2020 semester will still have a May 2020 graduation date on their diplomas and transcripts. The ceremony is a celebration of hard work and accomplishments, but it is not required in order to confer the degree. Postponing commencement ceremonies will not keep students from job searching or accepting admission to graduate or professional schools.
