December Commencement Schedule

As part of APU’s ongoing commitment to honor our 2020 graduates, two additional days of Commencement activities have been added. Renamed 2020 Commencement, Azusa Pacific University will provide an expanded number of commencement ceremonies for all students graduating in 2020. A distinct ceremony will be offered for undergraduates originally scheduled to walk in May. All department celebrations and hooding ceremonies for 2020 graduates will take place in the month of December. The 2020 Commencement schedule follows:

Saturday, December 12

  • Undergraduate and Professional Ceremony (May 2020 graduates only)

Friday, December 18

  • Graduate Ceremony (May 2020 graduates only)
  • School of Nursing Pinning Ceremony (December 2020 graduates only)

Saturday, December 19

  • Undergraduate and Professional Ceremony (December 2020 graduates only)
  • Graduate Ceremony (December 2020 graduates only)

December was chosen following review of the latest local and statewide COVID-19 public health guidelines and directives. APU will continue to monitor and respond to California’s guidelines and directives through the fall to assess, and modify if necessary, final event planning details. The ceremonies will be live-streamed for those unable to attend.

Additional details and ceremony times will be added as they become available.
