USU Reschedules In-Person Commencement Events for August 2020

Utah State University President Noelle Cockett announced Monday, March 23, USU will conduct an in-person commencement ceremony in Logan on Aug. 28-29, 2020. Statewide campuses will plan graduation events for the first two weeks of September, with specific dates to be determined. All events are contingent on public health circumstances surrounding the global pandemic.

The university canceled its April 30 and May 1 commencement and convocation events in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. All other institutions in the Utah System of Higher Education also canceled or postponed commencement events this spring. 

In August, graduates will have the opportunity to participate in traditional commencement celebrations, in addition to events unique to this year. The university has planned a full commencement in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum, and colleges will schedule their own ceremonies for the afternoon of Aug. 29. 

More details will be released at a later date on USU’s commencement home page, USU social media accounts, and Utah State Today. Please email with any questions regarding commencement.
