The year 2020 has thrown some big challenges your way, but you’ve earned an Indiana University degree. We are making plans to officially and publicly honor you as an IU East graduate.
Everyone hoped we could hold a live, in-person commencement by the end of 2020, but the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and its required limits on large gatherings have made it impossible to hold such an event this year.
As you may remember, IU East virtually celebrated December 2019, May 2020, and August 2020 graduates on the scheduled day of the Commencement Ceremony on May 15. However, we still want to congratulate you in person! And, we plan to do that during a Commencement Ceremony in May of 2021. Of course, our plan is contingent upon, and will be within, the context of the public health guidance at that time.
Details about the exact date, time, and location will be shared as soon as possible. Information about rented caps and gowns will be provided to you within the next few weeks.
