Undergraduate, Doctoral and Master's Students

We are excitedly anticipating our most time-honored tradition, Commencement, with the Class of 2021 in-person and on campus.

  • Events will be live-streamed. 
  • Arcadia’s Online, Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral degree ceremonies will be held all-modes ready and delivered in a hybrid space to expand participation. 
  • Each ceremony will include a series of speakers, acknowledgments, and reading of the names of all graduates. 
  • Graduates in person will walk across the stage when they hear their name and receive an official Arcadia casing. (Diplomas will be mailed separately.)
  • Each ceremony will be approximately 90 minutes.
  • Each graduate can register up to four (4) guests, who will be emailed an individual ticket. 
  • Please check the schedule of your ceremony.
  • All ceremonies are spaced with timing to include a thorough cleaning and setup between events. 
  • Logistical information will be communicated in the next week including ceremony links, entry points, traffic flow, and parking.

This ceremony will adhere to the Arcadia health and safety protocols in the COVID Health and Safety Plan and state and local regulations. All attendees must wear a mask and remain socially distanced. 

  • We have extended the regalia order deadline to April 14; you must schedule your regalia pickup date. 
  • All graduates are asked to complete their Graduation slide for the ceremony by May 3. 
  • We will send weekly updates with more logistical information over the next six weeks.
