Our #UIS21 Graduate Celebration will launch at Noon on May 15, featuring special videos, virtual gifts, messages to and from graduates, and lots more, to celebrate our 2021 graduates for Commencement Day.
May 13 & 14 Stage Experience
The recordings of the Stage Experience are available as two separate videos.
Given the safety protocols we have put into place for this event and with the guidance given through the UIS COVID Rapid Response Team (CRRT), a negative COVID-19 test is no longer required for participation in the Stage Experience.
However, graduating students who live, learn, work or train on campus should continue to follow their required on-campus testing protocol.
All graduates are still encouraged to be tested, but a test result will not be required to show at check-in.
Our United in Safety protocols, including face coverings and social distancing throughout your and your guests’ time while on campus, remain in effect.
You and all of your guests should check in within 10 minutes of your designated registered time. For example, if your timeslot says 2:40, you and your guests should check in between 2:30 and 2:40. You will cross the stage approximately 20 minutes after your appointed timeslot.
It is possible the time you sign up for could be slightly adjusted. If this occurs, you will be notified.
