Off-Cycle Commencement Participation

Off-cycle commencement participation occurs when a student wishes to participate in commencement during a session before all degree requirements are met, or after their degree has been conferred. To be eligible to RSVP for spring 2021 commencement, one of the following criteria must be met:

  • A degree application is on file going forward one session (summer 21 to participate in spring 21 commencement) OR
  • A conferred degree within the past calendar year

Meeting one of the above criteria will make the RSVP available in MyUI beginning in early March, 2021. Please visit the RSVP page for more information.
