Spring 2021

Graduation

Overview

Overview

Due to COVID-19, graduation ceremonies will be held virtually for May 2021.

All ceremonies will be pre-recorded and viewable on May 3, 2021, Click here to watch the ceremony at 9:00 am Arizona time.  

In a virtual ceremony, all students that apply to graduate and meet the graduating criteria will have a slide with their name on it that will be announced.  To personalize the ceremony, each student has the opportunity to upload a photo, statement, and short video.  Students do not have to participate in the ceremony should they choose not to.  The College of Global Futures will incorporate the student’s slides from each school, along with additional videos, to showcase the great community that makes CGF.  

To see what SFIS’ December 2020 virtual ceremony was like click here.  The spring ceremony will be a little different because degrees will be conferred in each college's ceremony.
