May Commencement

Friday, May 07
Additional Information

UNCW will offer a hybrid of virtual and in-person ceremonies for May commencement. The university will hold multiple in-person ceremonies on May 7 and 8 in Trask Coliseum for the Class of 2021, as well as a virtual ceremony for graduating students who prefer that option. 

Graduates who attend an in-person ceremony will receive one guest ticket for their chosen ceremony. Seating will be assigned, and graduates will sit with their guests. COVID-19 health and safety protocols will be in effect for the in-person ceremonies, including social distancing and required face coverings. Trask will be sanitized between ceremonies. 

All graduates will be recognized individually, regardless of whether they choose virtual or in-person attendance. All ceremonies will be livestreamed and fully closed-captioned for remote viewing.
All departmental celebrations will be virtual. More information is available on the commencement website.
