Aurora University

Class of 2020

It’s hard to believe we are approaching another commencement season at Aurora University. Currently we are planning to hold in-person ceremonies this spring. We know your 2020 ceremony was affected by the pandemic and we would like to present another option for you this year.

We invite you to join the Class of 2021 this spring to celebrate your 2020 graduation under the tent on the Quad. AU ceremonies are scheduled to be held Saturday, May 1, and Sunday, May 2, 2021. Each participant will receive two guest tickets to a smaller ceremony so that we may provide a safe environment for graduates and their guests.

In order for us to plan appropriately we ask that you please complete the questionnaire that was emailed to you on Thursday, March 18, 2021. We need your reply no later than Sunday, March 28, 2021. If we do not receive your reply by then, the university will assume you are not interested in participating in the ceremony. If you did not receive this email, please contact

More information on your ceremony date and time will be provided once the RSVP process is completed and we know how many students have chosen to attend.

Due to the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and state and local public health guidelines, commencement dates and locations are subject to change and may revert to a virtual ceremony if necessary.
