Graduation Information

Upcoming Pinning & Commencement Ceremonies
Due to the rapidly evolving nature of the coronavirus (COVID-19), recommendations from Governor Pritzker and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Resurrection University is evaluating upcoming Commencement Ceremonies. This does not affect your ability to graduate/complete your program. Students will need to fulfill the necessary requirements, and Faculty ARE working diligently now on contingency plans that will allow you to complete your didactic and clinical requirements. We apologize for this inconvenience, and acknowledge that both Pinning and Commencement are important parts of your trajectory and celebration of your journey.
Summer 2020 Commencement has been rescheduled as a “Car-mencement” or Drive-Up ceremony. See below for more information.

Look for updates via, your ResU email, and social media (including Facebook and Twitter).
