The 534th Convocation ceremony, during which degrees are officially conferred to all graduates of 2021, will be held virtually on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. CDT.

In light of recent updated guidance from the CDC and the State of Illinois, we are pleased to report that the University has been able to adjust plans for the on-campus in-person diploma and hooding ceremonies. We are able to accommodate the attendance of up to two guests per student for those schools and divisions that elect to do so. We are excited that the current state of the pandemic is such that we are able to welcome a limited number of guests to campus to share in the convocation experience with our graduating students and celebrate what is a significant achievement. For the latest information on individual schools and divisions diploma and hooding ceremonies, please continue to visit convocation.uchicago.edu.
