Webster University 102nd Commencement to be Held Virtually on May 8, 2021

Due to the continued restrictions on large gatherings in the St. Louis area, Webster University will hold its 102nd annual Commencement ceremony in a virtual environment on Saturday, May 8, 2021.


In anticipation of this option, University leaders have been monitoring local conditions and public health restrictions amid the pandemic, while also pursuing contingency plans to hold an online-only ceremony, as took place for the 101st Commencement in May 2020.


Event planners are evaluating enhanced features that will make the virtual ceremony a memorable occasion for our graduates, families and friends. These plans include a well-known and inspirational voice to serve as the Commencement Speaker, which will be announced soon.


More information will be posted as it is finalized. Graduates are encouraged to visit webster.edu/commencement for the Steps to Graduate and other updates throughout the spring.
