Commencement > FAQs


On Saturday, June 13, 2020, DePaul will launch online commencement ceremonies for graduates, families and friends to view and share. These ceremonies will be available on the commencement website for the next year.  

These ceremonies have been planned to give the DePaul community and your loved ones a chance to recognize and celebrate you in a safe manner. This will be a unique commencement experience created for unprecedented times. Once it is safe to bring people together again, DePaul will consider how to honor graduating classes with in-person celebrations.
