In-Person Ceremony Update

Once it’s safe to host large gatherings, Augsburg will plan an in-person commencement event for the Class of 2021, which will include familiar graduation traditions. Every student’s hard work and achievement deserves to be honored, and we look forward to the day when we can recognize and celebrate the Class of 2021 by coming together. When in-person event details are confirmed, you’ll have an opportunity to order your graduation gown and other regalia.
