Winter 2021 Commencement


Graduation is not only an end, it is a new beginning; the start of a new chapter in your life. SVSU plans to celebrate this amazing occasion with its graduates in May 2021. We hope SVSU can host traditional Commencement ceremonies. In the coming months, the university will work with regional health care partners to determine if we can move forward with traditional Commencement plans or provide an alternative ceremony that both honors our graduates and ensures their health and safety.

As plans for the celebration take form, SVSU will update the campus community in this space and our other channels of communication.

If SVSU hosts its traditional Commencement ceremonies, those events would take place at 7 p.m. Friday, May 7; and 11 a.m. Saturday, May 8. The May 7 ceremony would honor graduates of the colleges of Business as well as Health & Human Services. The May 8 ceremony would honor graduates of the colleges of Arts & Behavioral Sciences; Education; and Science, Engineering & Technology.
