Is spring commencement canceled?

Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold a traditional in-person commencement this May. Instead, Purdue will offer May 2020 graduates a first-of-its-kind on-demand commencement ceremony.

More information on commencement is available here.

Here is some additional information:

  1. We will offer all May candidates the option to participate in a future traditional ceremony.
  2. We have worked with Herff Jones to:
    1. Remove any late fees.
    2. Extend the decision time for cap and gown rental until April 22.
    3. Absorb the cost for shipping to and from student-provided addresses.
    4. Allow students to have their cap and gown for a full week so they can wear it the week of our virtual ceremony.
  3. Our diploma vendor will mail diplomas and commencement program to students’ homes. Students can expect to receive their diplomas before May 15, 2020.
