Spring semester ceremonies are held in May, and fall semester ceremonies are held in December.

MU does not hold a summer commencement ceremony. Students that are completing degrees during a summer semester should review the summer participation policies.

The Spring 2021 commencement schedule has been altered to extend over 2 weeks to hold reduced capacity, socially distanced ceremonies that follow health and safety guidelines.

Check the Mizzou commencement site for a schedule of upcoming ceremonies and events.


Due to health and safety guidelines necessary to hold in-person ceremonies for 2021 graduates, please be aware of these important commencement details:

Students will be pre-seated after checking in

There will be no congratulatory handshakes and no doctoral hooding

There will be no faculty participation during the ceremony

Tickets are required for guests.

If you would like to participate at a future commencement ceremony due to health or safety reasons or when restrictions are lifted, please contact the Graduate School.



The deadline to register for commencement is April 26th.  Commencement participants must register to attend this event.
