Tickets are required to attend the College of Medicine Commencement Ceremony. Tickets must be requested by members of the Class via the link they received. Each graduate is allowed two vaccinated guests. The deadline to request tickets is Friday, May 14 at 12pm. 

Testing for In-person Participants
All members of the Class of 2021 participating in the in-person ceremony will be required to get a COVID-19 test on Thursday, May 20. There are no exceptions to this testing requirement. The Davis Center Testing site is the preferred testing location and will be open from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 20. Faculty and staff who will be supporting the ceremony are also required to test. Those who are unable to test at the Davis Center on May 20 will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test from an alternate location (only PCR tests will be accepted). Additional information will be shared with students via email about how to provide proof of a negative test performed outside of the Davis Center.

All students must receive a negative test to participate in Commencement. Students who do not test or who receive a positive test will not be permitted to attend the in-person ceremony. Guests are not required to test, but will complete an attestation as part of the ticketing process.
