University of the Ozarks will host a limited in-person Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 15, 2021.
The ceremony will take place outdoors on the Hurie Soccer Field beginning at 10 a.m. and will be held in accordance with Arkansas Department of Health guidelines as well as the University’s COVID pandemic protocols and guidelines.
Each graduate may invite up to four guests for the in-person Commencement. Graduates must pre-register their guests and tickets will be required for admittance.
Social-distancing protocols will be in place and masks will be required for all graduates, volunteers and guests. The ceremony will be livestreamed so that families and friends who are not able to attend can watch the in-person celebration.
In addition to spring 2021 graduates, spring 2020 graduates have also been invited to participate in the May 15 Commencement ceremony. It will mark the first time since December 2019 that the University has held Commencement in person.
