Commencement Information


UAFS will conduct two sets of commencement ceremonies at the conclusion of the spring semester. On May 1, 2021, we will hold ceremonies to honor graduates in the Spring 2020, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020 semesters whose ceremonies were cancelled due to COVID-19 19. On May 7, 8, and 9 we will hold ceremonies for Spring 2021 and Sumer 2021 candidates for graduation.


All commencement ceremonies will follow the protocols set forth by the Arkansas Department of Health. As a result, commencement ceremonies for all 2020 graduates will look very different: the number of graduates and guests in each ceremony will be very limited, tickets will be required for both graduates and guests, and all graduates, guests, and staff will be required to social distance and wear a mask. Each ceremony will be no more than one hour.


A maximum of 140 graduates will be in each ceremony, with a four-guest maximum for each graduate. Tickets will be required for each guest.
