Important information about the novel coronavirus
Indiana University is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our graduates and their families and friends.
As a result, Indiana University President Michael McRobbie announced that all spring 2020 IU Commencement Ceremonies will be postponed to a later date - yet to be determined. You can view the President's announcement at https://universityevents.iu.edu/commencement.html.
We know that Commencement is a special time for students and families and, like you, we are disappointed that world events have forced us to postpone this important ceremony. We will provide updates regarding further information related to Commencement. When available, that information will also appear on this site.
Congratulations to our graduates! We are very proud of you and look forward to celebrating your successes soon.
