A doctoral degree represents the culmination of years of commitment, dedication, and work. We are incredibly proud to acknowledge and celebrate this moment with you.


Watch the 2021 May Virtual Doctoral Celebration video premiere on Saturday, May 15, at 2 p.m. CST.


We will have remarks from campus leaders and recognize graduates by name from each College and School. Please join us to honor and mark this important moment and share it with family, friends, and colleagues who helped you succeed. Everyone is welcome. 


No registration is necessary. We will post watch links in early May.


Please note, in the future, the University of Illinois will invite graduates to in-person ceremonies when it is safe to do so.
