Graduation Events


Winter Semester 2021

Gathering for a graduation celebration with students, families, and friends is a cherished tradition at BYU-Idaho. Due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, a Winter Semester 2021 Commencement will become available online on Thursday, April 8, at 7:00 p.m. MST.


Although a University-wide convocation ceremony will not be streamed, some academic departments are organizing private Convocation ceremonies for their students. For more information on Convocations, please get in touch with your Academic Department or contact BYU-Idaho

BYU-Idaho enthusiastically congratulates our graduates who have worked so hard to reach this remarkable milestone and commend them for their momentous achievement. At this time, we would like to share this special message—a traditional part of the university’s commencement ceremony.
