Apply for Your Degree!
If you haven’t already applied to graduate, make sure you apply online as soon as possible.
Applying for your degree is different than opting in to participate in commencement. In order to receive a degree from the UO this spring, undergraduates must apply by April 25, 2021, via DuckWeb. Graduate students should apply for their degree using GradWeb.
Opt in to Participate in Commencement 2021
Class of 2021 graduates who wish to participate in commencement activities this year must opt in by May 10, 2021. The opt in for the two in-person activities is now closed. If you have any questions please contact the Commencement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each eligible graduate who opts in by May 10, 2021, can choose to receive a special celebration box to help commemorate this important academic achievement.
Order Your Regalia
Regalia and all other graduate essentials can be found and purchased through The Duck Store, as part of their annual Grad Fair.
We’ve waived the annual commencement fee again this year and all graduates will receive a diploma cover free of charge, thanks to a generous donation from the University of Oregon Alumni Association. In order to receive your free diploma cover please claim it through The Duck Store.
Personalize Your Graduation Slide
All graduates who opt in by May 10 will have their name read as part of their school or college pre-recorded commencement ceremony. Students can also personalize their slide by adding a photo, short message and a short video to enhance their recognition moment. These slides can be downloaded on commencement day to share with family and friends.
Graduates who opt in will be sent an email from StageClip within one week of opting in with instructions on how to personalize their graduation slide.
Prepare for Life Beyond the UO
We know that the question of “what’s next?” can be daunting, especially now. Visit the University Career Center for information especially for seniors, and for help on resumes, interviewing, appointments with career coaches, and other career-related help. Also, be sure to share your post-graduation plans through the UO's First Destination Survey. No matter what your plans are, this information is extremely helpful in understanding our university and is used to help support the education and student services for future Ducks. Thank you for your participation!
Graduation is just the beginning of your journey as a Duck. Now, more than ever, it is important to be connected to your fellow Ducks and the entire alumni network. As you begin your next chapter, the UO Alumni Association is gifting all 2021 grads a one-year free membership that runs June 2021 through June 2022.
Stay Connected for Information on Commencement 2022
As we are doing for the Class of 2020, the Class of 2021 is also invited back to campus to participate in our traditional commencement exercises next year. Information on Commencement 2022 will be available next fall.
In order to ensure you receive them, it’s important that you forward your UO email before you graduate. Go to Duck ID Self-Service and follow the instructions to set up a forward of your "@uoregon" email to your personal email address. Don't forget to export any emails you'd like to keep. Although your forward will last forever, your stored email won't! Refer to the Duck ID website for more details.
Don’t Miss a Thing!
We’ll be updating our website as more information emerges for Commencement 2021 (and Commencement 2022). We’ll email important information to graduates in the coming weeks at their official "@uoregon" email, and through updates to the Commencement website. Please contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
