Interested in being a part of a Commencement celebration video that will be shown during each ceremony? To apply for consideration, students must submit a 30 second video. The address should celebrate the accomplishments of all of the graduates, celebrate your accomplishments, and honor the many contributions of students, faculty, and staff across our diverse campus community. Eligible candidates to have their videos selected for use in commencement must have completed all degree requirements. Complete this FORM by November 1, 2023, to be considered. Any questions please contact the Commencement Office at 217-581-6616 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can't make it to Charleston for your graduate's big day? That doesn't mean you can't see them walk across the stage and receive that diploma! WEIU-TV plans to live stream the entirety of each ceremony on YouTube; you can watch them here as they take place!
Commencement is one of the most exciting events of the year at Eastern Illinois University — and for the graduates and families involved, it's also one of the most memorable.
EIU hosts two annual commencements, at the end of the spring and fall semesters. Those graduating at the end of the summer semester are included in the fall ceremonies. If summer graduates wish to participate in the spring ceremonies, they should contact their college Dean’s office to request to participate by exceptionality.
