Commencement Information

As the worldwide COVID-19 situation continues to create ongoing challenges and uncertainties, we keep you, your families, and your communities in prayer for health, security, and peace.

We at Global University are committed to your safety and well-being, but we are also committed to a meaningful recognition of your hard work and accomplishments—even as adjustments are necessary in this unusual time. We have considered the current situation, the projected long-term impacts, and the goal to provide a high-quality event. As a result, Global University has made the decision to not host a commencement ceremony in Springfield this October. Be assured, however, that alternate plans are underway to celebrate and honor you, our graduates, in an adjusted manner. This year’s GU Commencement will occur virtually as follows:
