University of Iowa






Spring 2020 commencement ceremonies have been canceled.

We are extremely disappointed to announce that we must cancel spring commencement ceremonies. We know how much these ceremonies mean to our students and their families, but we feel it is the right decision to protect those most vulnerable to the threat of infection.

We are in the process of planning an alternative celebration for graduating Hawkeyes and will share additional details soon.

The Hawk Shop is currently closed; please check back for apparel purchasing information.

The Grad Fair and all other UI events will be canceled, postponed, or conducted virtually for the remainder of the spring semester.


Iowa Graduation App

We recommend students, staff, and guests download the University of Iowa Graduation App for quick access to commencement information. The Iowa Graduation App can be downloaded for Apple and Android devices.
