Iowa State University Master’s Commencement Ceremony

Date/Time
Date(s) - 7 May 2021 until 7 May 2021
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Location
Jack Trice Stadium

Master’s graduates will be recognized during an in-person Cyclone Graduation Celebration at Jack Trice Stadium on Friday, May 7, at 11 a.m. This event will be modified from the traditional commencement ceremony, but will include:

·       A shorter-than-usual program to officially confer the degrees

·       The reading of individual names as graduates cross the stage wearing academic attire

·       Formal graduation photographs

We do not anticipate needing to limit guest attendance due to the large capacity and outdoor setting of the stadium. All graduates and guests will be required to wear face coverings and practice physical distancing.

More details and instructions for each event are forthcoming, including inclement weather alternatives. The Registrar’s Office will communicate directly with candidates for graduation. Updates will be posted on www.graduation.iastate.edu as they become available. The official commencement program will be made available to degree candidates regardless of attendance.

The events outlined above will be limited to only those students graduating in Spring 2021 or Summer 2021, in order to safely accommodate graduates and guests. We remain committed to inviting Spring 2020, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020 graduates back to campus for a future in-person commencement when conditions allow, and we will provide additional information on that opportunity in the fall.
