TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) -The University of Arizona will host several in-person graduation ceremonies through Tuesday, May 18.

Most of the ceremonies, which are grouped by programs, will take place at two locations: Arizona Stadium and the Cole and Jeannie Davis Sports Center. The Phoenix and Yuma campuses will have ceremonies in their respective cities.

A full schedule of events is below, and the ceremonies will be live streamed on the university’s commencement website and YouTube page.

Last year’s UArizona Commencement was held in all-virtual format due to the pandemic. In-person ceremonies were allowed to resume this year, thanks, in part, to low COVID-19 infection numbers on campus and the widespread availability of vaccines.

However, this year’s ceremonies will look different from all-university commencement ceremonies held at Arizona Stadium in the past. The series of smaller ceremonies will have limited attendance, with each student allowed only four guests.

Guests must have tickets to enter, and all attendees must follow the university’s clear-bag policy, which prohibits purses, backpacks and large bags.

Masks will be required and physical distancing will be in place. In addition, all participating students will be required to test negative for COVID-19 or upload proof of full vaccination to the Campus Health website within 72 hours of the event.
