University-wide Commencement Update

In an effort to provide a safe and meaningful commencement experience during this extraordinary time, the University of Louisville has begun making plans to hold outdoor, in-person commencement exercises the weekend of May 7 to May 9 at Cardinal Stadium for May 2021 and any 2020 graduates that would like to participate.

Details for the ceremonies are to be determined and will be based strictly on all UofL, state and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines regarding COVID-19 precautions. The safety and well-being of our graduates, their families, our faculty and staff and the community are of utmost concern.

Please do not make any travel plans at this time. Details including specific dates, times, ticketing information and inclement weather plans will be announced by early April.
