2020-2021 Graduation Ceremonies

We celebrate our students' hard work and dedication to success with our graduation ceremonies that are held once a year at the end of the Spring term. The Spring 2021 commencement and convocations will be held May 7.  

Attention Graduates

Graduates must register to participate in UVU's Graduation Ceremonies. Ceremony registration will open in early March - please check back at that time.  To register to participate, register as a member of uvualumni.org, then fill out the 'ceremony registration form' to let us know which ceremonies you will be participating in.  We will reserve your spot, let your college/school know you will be participating (if applicable), and add you to the email list for future ceremony details.

You did it! Show off your UVU pride wherever you are celebrating your achievement.

Though it will look different than what you probably had in mind, the cause for celebration is possibly more meaningful than ever before! As such, we wanted to get your party started with a digital party pack filled with decorations, photo props, inspiration to share your achievement, the UVU fight song, a trip down memory lane, recipes, and more.
