December 2020 Commencement with social distancing

December 2021 COEHP Commencement

Commencement is an important recognition of a significant milestone in a student’s academic journey and allows the institution to realize its ultimate mission. As with most everything else this year, fall 2021 commencement ceremonies will look different as required to keep everyone as safe as possible.

The University of Arkansas again will hold two programs to assure adequate seating. The one including the College of Education and Health Professions will be 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 18, 2021, at Bud Walton Arena on the Fayetteville campus.

The Fall Commencement page of the  Office of the Registrar offers complete details including updates and general information — both for the graduates and their guests — including parking and security details. Families should note that doors will open 60 minutes prior to the ceremony and they are encouraged to be seated 15 minutes prior to the ceremony’s start. 


All students will need to have their own regalia to participate in Commencement. The Registrar's Office has cap-and-gown details such as a checklist on degree and departmental items, policies and related information.
