Graduation Information

Spring 2020 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 understand that families and loved ones might have arranged for travel to these events, but we ask that they check with airlines, hotels, and other agencies making accommodations in light of the pandemic at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, and acknowledge that both Pinning and Commencement are important parts of your trajectory and celebration of your journey, but rest assured, these events will be evaluated.

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

Congratulations on graduating from Resurrection University

It’s a significant accomplishment that deserves to be celebrated. Here is all of the information you need to make sure your graduation experience is everything you hoped for. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Resurrection University, congratulations Graduate.
