The University of Illinois is monitoring the unfolding situation of COVID-19 and any potential impact on university events. Presently, the University has not yet made a decision about Commencement and convocation for May 2021. A central web resource, the University's COVID website, is a good starting point for the latest information about the virus and its effects on university operations and plans.
