Nearly 3,500 USask students set to graduate this spring

SASKATOON – This spring, 3,465 students are expected to graduate from the University of Saskatchewan (USask) with 3,577 degrees, diplomas and certificates. These graduates join a century-old community of more than 162,000 alumni worldwide whose contributions are helping to shape our world.

Due to the pandemic, in-person ceremonies will not be held. Instead, all celebrations will be streamed live and will take place from May 28 to June 4. Additionally, the academic achievements of graduating USask Métis, First Nations and Inuit students will be further celebrated at the online Indigenous Graduation Celebration on May 28 at noon in place of the annual USask Graduation Powwow.

There will be seven live college events which will include award presentations, a message from Chancellor Grit McCreath and USask Alumni, and addresses from Elder Roland Duquette, President Peter Stoicheff and one of the five spring 2021 honorary degree recipients.

Graduates will receive their parchments in the mail, along with mementos to help celebrate, beginning mid-June. USask graduation lawn sign and other graduation-themed items are available for order. There are also printable USask graduation posters. USask graduation-themed GIFs can be found by searching "USask" on Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok, and limited-time “USask Class of 2021” Facebook frames are available by searching “USask” as well.

Graduates are encouraged to share pictures of their celebrations on social media using #USaskClassOf2021.
