2021 Commencement Ceremonies

Mines is committed to hosting an in-person celebration for our May 2021 graduates. We are working closely with county health officials on a format that meets current health and safety guidelines. The ceremonies will take place on Thursday, May 13 for PhD and master’s candidates and Friday, May 14 for bachelor’s candidates. Each student can bring a limited number of guests*.  All students must RSVP by April 13 via Marching Order in order to participate in the ceremony.

All ceremonies will take place outdoors, rain or shine, at Marv Kay Stadium.

We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our May 2021 graduates!

We plan to celebrate our 2020 graduates on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at Marv Kay Stadium. Any May 2020 or December 2020 graduate who has not already indicated they want to participate should email commencement@mines.edu in order to be added to the ceremony. The last date to add anyone to this ceremony is April 13.
