Requirements and Resources for Graduation

Congratulations to our Hilltoppers graduating in 2021! And welcome back to our Class of 2020 alumni for your in-person commencement experience! This is your central resource for everything you need to know about graduation events. You’ll find information about the ceremony itself, completing your eligibility requirements, getting ready for graduation and the opportunities you’ll have to celebrate your educational journey at St. Edward’s. 

As we adhere to CDC pandemic guidelines, the St. Edward’s Commencement committee is working closely with our campus medical advisory team to create a safe and memorable commencement experience for graduates and their families and friends. Follow the links below to learn about our commencement plans for the Class of 2021 (graduates from Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021), as well as plans for the Class of 2020. Commencement plans include our undergraduate, graduate, New College, and adult and continuing studies students.
