Midyear Commencement

Fall 2021 - In Person

Midyear Commencement will be held on the Newberg campus in Bauman Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 18.

  • The undergraduate commencement ceremony (traditional undergraduate and George Fox Connect students) is at 11 a.m.
  • The graduate commencement ceremony (all graduate students) is at 3 p.m.

Due to limited space in Bauman Auditorium and the need to provide adequate physical distancing, graduates will be limited to four guests each, with tickets provided to graduates in advance with their regalia. 

Masks are required indoors in all George Fox University facilities as we continue to take a cautious approach that meets state requirements. We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our graduates on Dec. 18!

We anticipate each ceremony to last approximately one hour. 

Accessible seating is available for guests with disabilities and one companion. This seating area is designated for individuals using wheelchairs and guests with mobility issues. To place a reservation, please contact Laurie Fair at

Virtual Participation

Both commencement ceremonies will be livestreamed online for friends and family members who are unable to attend in person.

The commencement ceremony livestream is HERE to watch on Saturday, Dec. 18.
