Virtual Commencement

Sitka will host a virtual commencement ceremony this year. We will be reading all the names of students in Sitka degree programs who completed in Fall 2020, and the candidates for Spring 2021 and early Summer 2021. Students who have a confidentiality flag will not be read.

The virtual ceremony will go live Friday, April 30th at 5 p.m. AKST.

Do you want your photo in the virtual ceremony? Fill out the Commencement & Graduate Photo Slideshow form to have your picture included when your name is read. Although not required for the virtual commencement, caps and gowns for your personal celebration along with photos can be ordered on the UAS Jostens website.

Diploma Information

Diplomas will be printed after final grades are processed and we have certified that your requirements are complete (approximately 4 weeks after the end of the semester). Students will have their diplomas mailed to the address provided on their graduation application.
