Creighton Plans for In-Person Commencement Ceremonies in May

Creighton University is planning in-person spring commencement and professional hooding ceremonies, along with baccalaureate Mass, for graduates and a limited number of their guests May 13-15. The ceremonies also will be livestreamed.

Each graduate will be allocated no more than two tickets for guests.

All graduates and guests will be required to follow Creighton’s COVID-19 Community Standards, which include not participating in or attending events if you are ill or if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event. Participants and guests will also be required to wear a face covering, maintain proper social distancing and practice good hand hygiene.

Cap and Gown/Ticket Pickup

Cap and gown/ticket pickup is scheduled for Wednesday, April 28, and Thursday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the DJ Sokol Arena (701 Florence Blvd., Omaha, 68102). Students who live in the Omaha area are expected to pick up their regalia and guest tickets on one of these dates.

If you are an out-of-town student planning to participate in your 2021 Commencement ceremony, you will have an opportunity to pick up your commencement attire and guest tickets prior to your ceremony. Please watch your email for further details.

Livestreaming

All commencement/hooding ceremonies will be livestreamed; links will be provided on this site closer to the ceremonies. Links to programs for each ceremony also will be available on this site, so guests can follow along with the order of events.
