Virtual Commencement Ceremony

Link to Ceremony

We are excited to announce that, for May 2021, we plan to hold UK's Commencement Ceremonies in person, at Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center, over the weekend of Friday, May 14th-Sunday, May 16th.  

Each participating graduate will be able to bring up to FOUR (4) guests to their ceremony. 

As a component of the Spring 2021 Commencement ceremonies, a virtual website will be offered to any student who wishes to upload a picture and/or personal message to an individual graduate slide. The in-person ceremonies will be live-streamed to the UK Commencement website as well as this virtual ceremony page for any student or guest who cannot attend to watch. The personalized graduation slide is optional for any graduate.

Thank you for all you have done to make this important moment possible. We can’t wait to celebrate your achievements as members of this community.
