Iowa State University will celebrate students graduating from all Ph.D. programs at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 7, at Hilton Coliseum. The program will include remarks from President Wendy Wintersteen, formal graduation photographs, and the reading of individual names as graduates cross the stage.
Participating students are required to wear caps and gowns, which are available for rent or purchase at the ISU Bookstore.
In order to safely accommodate graduates and guests, this ceremony is limited to spring 2021 and summer 2021 degree candidates. Spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020 graduates will be invited to a separate in-person ceremony when conditions allow.
All graduates and guests will be required to wear face coverings and practice physical distancing. Guest attendance will be limited to ensure physical distancing.
The Iowa State University Registrar’s Office will post more details here as they become available. Students should also watch their Iowa State email for messages from the Registrar’s Office.
