Commencement

Congratulations Graduates!

Creighton University awarded more than 2,200 degrees during virtual commencement ceremonies on May 15 and 16. This marked the first time in the school's 142-year history that the ceremonies were held online, driven by restrictions imposed to counter the spread of the novel coronavirus. Links to the virtual degree-conferral ceremony and the virtual ceremonies for individual schools and colleges are available below.


Diplomas will be sent electronically to students who have completed their degree requirements. The electronic diploma will come from this email address: Creighton University - no-reply@diplomasondemandweb.com. Diplomas and covers will be sent in early summer.
 
Congratulations to Creighton College of Arts and Sciences graduate Michael Galeski, who was honored with the University's highest student honor, the Spirit of Creighton Award, during the virtual commencement exercises May 16. The University also presented honorary degrees to Linda Hunt, CEO of Dignity Health Arizona, and the four founding members of the Institute for Priestly Formation, Kathleen Kanavy, the Rev. Richard Gabuzda, STD, the Rev. John Horn, SJ, and the Rev. George Aschenbrenner, SJ.

The University continues to plan for an in-person, on-campus commencement. Currently, we are looking at hosting ceremonies, including a baccalaureate Mass, on Sept. 18 and 19, as well as events and activities to reconnect with classmates the week of Sept. 14. If that is not possible due to global, national, state, or local public health recommendations and guidelines, we will need to propose contingency plans. Whatever we do, the safety of our graduates, their families, and the community is a priority. More information will be forthcoming soon.
