**Due to COVID-19 public health & safety protocols, there will not be public commencement and convocation exercises for 2021.**




Brigham Young University holds one graduation ceremony in April. Students who have or will be graduating within a single academic year (e.g. 2020-2021 academic year) are invited to attend the April commencement and convocation ceremony of that academic year. For example; If a student graduates in December 2020, April 2021, June 2021, or August 2021 will participate in the April 2020 convocation.

Graduation ceremonies consist of two events: commencement and convocation. Commencement is the university gathering, which includes all graduating students. Convocation is the gathering of graduating students by college/school after commencement. During convocation, each graduate is recognized by name and appears on stage.
