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 Options

Both commencement ceremonies will be livestreamed online for friends and family members who are unable to attend in person. The livestream link will be posted on this page to access on Saturday, Dec. 18.

Graduates who cannot attend commencement in person are invited to attend virtually! If you sign up to attend virtually, we will read your name during the ceremony and display your photo if you share one with us. Please complete this form if you’d like to attend virtually.
