Millikin University is excited to announce that May 2021 graduates, for both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs, will be recognized through two in-person ceremonies at Kirkland Fine Arts Center.
May 16 at 9:30 A.M.
College of Arts & Sciences and Tabor School of Business
*Includes MBA Graduates
May 16 at 2:30 P.M.
College of Fine Arts and College of Professional Studies
*Includes MSN & DNP Graduates
Only May 2021 graduating students will be participating in the ceremonies on the 16th. Because of CDC and State of Illinois COVID restrictions, Kirkland Fine Arts Center capacity only allows for the graduating students, the platform participants on stage and representatives of the faculty inside Kirkland. Unfortunately, family, friends and other guests will not be able to attend the ceremonies. Millikin community members will be able to watch the graduation ceremonies through a public livestream on Millikin's graduation website and Facebook page.
All individuals in attendance at the ceremonies will be required to wear a well-fitting face mask (no gaiters or scarf-type coverings) and participate in SHIELD Saliva-Based COVID-19 Testing on campus. Testing will be provided to participants free of charge and will take place on Thursday and Friday, May 13thand 14th, 2021. Participant should schedule their tests through their MySHIELD account. Testing hours will be extended on these dates and results will be delivered to participants on Saturday, May 15th. Those participants who receive a positive result will be unable to participate in the ceremonies. As such, it is vital for both individual and community safety that all participants quarantine themselves as much as possible between the time of their test and the ceremonies. Participants will also be socially distanced before, during, and after the ceremonies.
