Winter 2020 Virtual Commencement Ceremonies

Congratulations Winter 2020 graduates!

We are excited to celebrate your accomplishment during two Virtual Commencement Ceremonies that will go live at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 12 at Tell your friends and family to celebrate the valuable achievement of a Vandal degree. One ceremony is geared toward those receiving undergraduate degrees and a second is for those receiving graduate and law degrees.

In addition to speeches by university and student leaders, we have partnered to with StageClip and Name Coach to honor each of you individually. Each graduate’s StageClip video will be sent to their VandalMail following the ceremony.

To get you started on your celebration, we have also developed a VandalGrad Snapchat lens to virtually try on your cap and gown.

Celebration in a Box

Completing a college degree is an achievement to be celebrated. The virtual ceremony and a “Celebration in a Box” being mailed to you is our way of honoring you for this milestone while being cognizant of the realities surrounding COVID-19. 

The “Celebration in a Box” package will be shipped to each graduate’s diploma mailing address, which can be confirmed by logging into VandalWeb, selecting Graduation Application Status and viewing the diploma mailing address.

Spring 2021 Ceremony

We know many of you are also looking forward to attending a Commencement Ceremony in person. Winter 2020 graduates are invited to take part in a Spring 2021 ceremony tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 15, 2021, in Moscow.

You are welcome to attend the Moscow Commencement or ceremonies being planned this spring in Boise, Coeur d’Alene and Idaho Falls. It is our intent to honor all students who have earned their degrees during the pandemic once it is safe to do so in a large group setting. More details on those ceremonies will be released closer to the event.
