Spring 2021 commencement

Are you honoring a graduate from Kansas State University this spring? Join the celebration as we recognize graduates from 2020, as well as graduation candidates for May and summer 2021, with the return to formal, in-person commencement ceremonies.

Ceremonies for Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus start at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 8, at the Tony's Pizza Events Center in Salina.

For the health and safety of all involved, ceremonies on the Manhattan campus will be held outside in Bill Snyder Family Stadium and spread over three days: Friday, May 14; Saturday, May 15; and Sunday, May 16. The Manhattan campus ceremonies are not open to the public, with entry by ticket only.
