2021 Graduation Information

The entire Class of 2021, deserve the opportunity to celebrate graduation with friends, family, and loved ones near and far. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and public health restrictions, the University of Northwestern Ohio is unable to celebrate graduation in person this June.

Graduation is a memorable and significant part of a person’s life. To make sure the University is honoring and recognizing all of this year’s graduates, UNOH is developing a digital media experience to celebrate the more than 1,000 students who are scheduled to graduate this spring.

How to participate in the 2021 virtual ceremony

Graduating students will receive emails and text messages, inviting them to participate in UNOH’s Virtual Commencement Celebrations. This experience will include a message from President Jarvis, specially-designed UNOH graduation filters to use on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, and information on how they can be included in the ceremonies. Graduating students WILL have their name read during the ceremony as long as we have a photo of you to display so your friends and family can celebrate you properly! 

Students scheduled to complete their program between September 1, 2020 and August 31, 2021 can send their name and photo to this Google Drive link: All submissions must be received BEFORE May, 28, 2021 to be included. 

If you believe you should be part of the Class of 2021, but have not received an email or text by Friday, May 14, please contact

Following the virtual event, graduating students who submitted photos to participate will receive their commemorative degree cover, printed graduation program, and commemorative tassel. If you need to update your mailing address information, please contact as soon as possible.
