In an email announcement June 30, Ball State announced the schedule for July 24 commencement ceremonies in Worthen Arena and updated its COVID-19 policies for the event.

Fully vaccinated graduates and guests will not be required to wear face masks, but those who are not fully vaccinated will still be required to wear masks — consistent with updated campus guidance implemented June 14. Graduates will no longer be limited to four guest tickets as COVID-19 health conditions are improving, the email said. Tickets will not be required to attend the events.

The schedule for the two different ceremonies are as follows:

  • 10 a.m.—R. Wayne Estopinal College of Architecture and Planning, College of Fine Arts, College of Sciences and Humanities, and Teachers College
  • 1 p.m.—Miller College of Business, College of Communication, Information and Media, and College of Health

If graduates did not register to walk at the commencement ceremony before the deadline of June 28, they are asked to email commencement@bsu.edu. The Commencement Office will provide further details to registered graduates as the ceremony approaches.
