Wheaton College’s 186th Commencement will take place on Saturday, May 22, 2021.

The plans for the Commencement celebration on Saturday, May 22 will consist of formal remarks delivered virtually beginning at 8:30 a.m., which will also be available on-demand after the event. Following the virtual program, we will be hosting five separate ceremonies to award degrees and present students with their diplomas. Each ceremony will be grouped by major, will be approximately 30 minutes long, and will take place on Chapel Field. To comply with event capacity guidelines, social distancing requirements and to allow up to two guests per student to attend, degrees will be awarded by major in five ceremonies scheduled throughout the day. All portions of the ceremony schedule will be available via a livestream webcast
