UPCOMING CEREMONY

The Fall 2021 Commencement ceremonies will be held on Friday and Saturday, December 10 and 11.
We plan to have the ceremonies in-person at Bartow Arena.

However, keeping in mind the possibility of future changes to UAB’s guidance on COVID-19, we cannot guarantee this. Although in-person ceremonies have been approved and are being planned, this may change, and the ceremonies may instead be held virtually. Because of this possibility, we strongly suggest that you plan ahead for both formats.

While we realize this is not ideal, it will help you and your guests plan for any potential changes in the format of your ceremony. Should the pandemic worsen, our plans may be required to change. By preparing for both scenarios, you will not be caught off-guard in the event the ceremony is moved to a virtual format. In the event of any changes made to the commencement ceremonies, you will be notified via email from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you plan to attend your ceremony, you MUST register to walk by October 29. Due to guidance on indoor gatherings and social distancing, following this date we cannot guarantee you a seat at your ceremony.
