Cronkite Convocation: Celebrating Your Graduation

Due to COVID-19 and the public health considerations that come with it, ASU is evaluating how we celebrate our spring 2021 graduates this semester. We will communicate an official plan once the university has decided on whether to conduct an in-person or virtual ceremony.

In the meantime, please review the important information below and continue to check back for updates.
