Commencement 2020


Celebrating the milestone of graduation is extremely important to our entire Augustana community. While we were unable to hold the commencement ceremony as planned at the time, we found other ways to celebrate the Class of 2020 in May. 

The ever-changing conditions associated with COVID-19 have caused us to move commencement for the Augustana Class of 2020 to May 2021. This will be an additional celebration, not a combined event, during Commencement Weekend. The health and safety of our entire Augustana family is our highest priority. This decision best aligns with the Viking Flex Plan
