While this past year has been challenging, TCSPP Administration, your department faculty, and support staff would like to take time to acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments in completing your degree program by holding a virtual Commencement ceremony. In order to make this event as personal and special as possible, each academic department will host its own virtual ceremony.
Because we are not yet able to gather in large groups, the Chicago Campus is not planning to hold an in-person Commencement Ceremony in 2021. We understand the importance of an in-person experience for many of you, and therefore invite the Class of 2021 to participate in the ceremony in 2022. To receive updates about the 2022 ceremony, contact Aimee Hein at [email protected]. For a preview of what virtual ceremonies entail, check out the videos below.
Check out Participant Information for dates, times, and how to RSVP.
The 2020 Chicago Campus virtual departmental celebrations of graduates were held on Wednesday, July 1 and Thursday, July 2 via Zoom. Please note that these department celebrations were limited to students who completed their programs at the Chicago campus.
Chicago's 2021 Commencement celebrations will be held virtually via Zoom on July 6, 7, and 8. Each department will host its own small virtual celebration of graduates.
To participate, complete the Intent to Participate in Commencement Form by Friday, June 18.
