Class of 2021
May 21-23, 2021
Commencement weekend for the class of 2021 is currently planned for May 21-23, with outdoor Commencement Exercises in Notre Dame Stadium. In the coming weeks, the University will assess whether a limited number of family members can safely attend. Information will be posted on this website as it becomes available. In the interim, families are strongly encouraged not to make non-refundable travel arrangements.
From Father Jenkins:
"Given what we know now and informed by the guidance of public health officials, we expect the Commencement events for the Class of 2021 to take place in-person on the dates scheduled, in accordance with appropriate health and safety protocols. We believe at this time that we will be able to safely host these events—with some modifications, of course—with and for our graduates who will have been on campus all semester, and therefore subject to regular surveillance testing and the many other public health protocols that are in place. We will assess the situation as the date draws closer and keep you informed. At this time, we hope to be able to also welcome to campus a limited number of family and guests for these celebrations. We will offer family members and guests the opportunity to be part of the festivities virtually as well."
