Commencement: Commencement times will be determined after the participation deadline. Participants and attendees assume all financial and health risks associated with attending commencement and must abide by all guidelines as required by the University, venue, and government. Commencement may be canceled or changed to a virtual experience due to government mandates or advisories regarding public health or safety, and the University will not be responsible for any incurred costs or expenses as a result.
Commencement Participation: Participation in commencement is not a verification of graduation. Candidates receive their diploma approximately 8 weeks after completion of their final class and once all program and financial requirements have been confirmed by University officials.

The registration of all participants, submission of photos/videos, and attendance at or participation in the graduation-related events serve as permission for use of these names, images, and posts by Purdue Global.
