Commencement Information

Join us in the Big Room!

Sinclair is pleased to announce that we will be holding general graduation ceremonies in the BIG ROOM (The University of Dayton Basketball Arena), on Thursday, May 6 for our 2021 graduates.

COVID safety guidelines are currently still an issue for such events, so our graduation ceremony will be significantly modified from that which Sinclair normally does. To accommodate ongoing COVID facility restrictions and public health protocols, Sinclair will have to split the graduating class into two smaller groups, thus holding two smaller 1-hour ceremonies on that Thursday. Sinclair has four academic divisions, so the one general graduation ceremony that you will attend at the UD arena will depend upon the division that you are in.  The ceremonies will be held as follows:

Thursday, May 6 at 10:00 a.m.

  • Students of the Business & Public Services Division
  • Students of the Liberal Arts, Communication & Social Sciences Division

Thursday, May 6 at 4:00 p.m.

  • Students of the Health Sciences Division
  • Students of the Science, Math & Engineering Division

The continuing COVID pandemic facility capacity restrictions are causing Sinclair to limit each of the two graduation ceremonies to approximately 500 graduates per ceremony, with each graduate getting up to four guest tickets.  The ceremonies will be live-streamed for family and friends who are unable to attend.
