Official Stetson University Graduation Tassle

Spring 2021 Commencement

Celebrations for the Spring 2021 Commencement have been planned for Friday, May 7, through Sunday, May 9, and will be held at the Spec Martin Memorial Stadium outdoors, rain or shine. The health and safety of our graduates, faculty and guests during these ceremonies is our top priority. For this reason, ceremonies have been split by college or school and further split by division as needed to maximize the size of each gathering. 

Stetson University will continue to follow state and local guidance and recommendations from the Safer Campus Task Force, Florida Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we do not anticipate this to be the case, a face-to-face May 2021 commencement may be altered or canceled if there is a measured increase in the status of COVID-19 cases in the United States and/or Florida. All attendees will be required to follow Stetson’s COVID-19 guidelines, which may include, but is not limited to, wearing an approved mask or facial covering and adhering to physical distancing requirements.

Graduates who wished to participate in the Spring 2021 Commencement were required to submit their intent to attend via the Commencement Participation Form. Graduates from May, July and December 2020 who deferred their participation were also required to submit the online form. The deadline to submit the form was Friday, Feb. 19.

We eagerly await the opportunity to celebrate our Spring 2021 graduates and hope you will visit our Frequently Asked Questions and Ceremony Details webpages for more information.
