Concordia University is pleased to announce the return of in-person commencement to celebrate the spring 2021 graduation candidates.

The May ceremonies will still look different from previous years, but we're thrilled that graduates will get the chance to physically cross the commencement stage.


Two separate ceremonies will take place on Sunday, May 9 at:

  • 1 p.m. Eastern
  • 4 p.m. Eastern
Master's candidates will receive an email by 8 a.m. on Monday, April 5 with a link that will allow them to register for their personal ticket, as well as two guest tickets. Graduate students have been assigned the 4 p.m. time slot on Sunday, May 9.

Undergraduate degree candidates will be able to register for a ceremony beginning Tuesday, April 6. A link will be received in CUAA emails by 8 a.m. Undergraduate students may select their preferred ceremony time of the two available slots. Priority will be determined on a first come, first served basis. To register for the ceremony, students must register for their ticket, as well as two guest tickets.
