Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from Augsburg University!  We look forward to celebrating with you and your family.   Additional information about the event and steps you will need to take to participate will be updated here as information becomes available.  

General Event Details

Monday, May 4, 2020


US Bank Stadium
1005 4th Street South
Minneapolis, MN  55415

To better accommodate the Augsburg University student body, the 2019 Commencement ceremony has been moved to U.S. Bank Stadium.

Graduation vs. Commencement

To clearly understand your action steps for commencement, it is important to note that the words “commencement” and “graduation” are not synonymous. Graduation happens the day that the Registrar’s Office confirms that all of your degree requirements have been satisfied and changes your status to “graduated” in the student information system.

Commencement will be held on Monday, May 4, 2020, and celebrates the past or future awarding of your degree.  Additional details about the Commencement ceremony and related activities, including the exact date and time that Commencement registration and ticket distribution begins, will be shared to your Augsburg-issued email in the spring semester.


Participation & Ticketing

Access to sign up for the ceremony and request your tickets will be available in mid-February 2019. All eligible graduates will receive an email with information about registering to participate, and accessing their tickets in their Augsburg-issued email prior to the access date. This email will include all important details regarding the date and time that tickets will be available, as well as all required log-in information.  Please note that while the site may be accessible prior to the on-sale date, if you attempt to request tickets prior to the start of ticket distribution, you will receive a message indicating you are not eligible for the ceremony.  Your status will change once ticket distribution officially begins.
