College Commencement Update

by | Apr 15, 2021

Trading the the traditional venue on Chambers Lawn, this year’s commencement ceremony is slated to take place in Richardson Stadium.

Davidson College’s 184th Commencement will be held on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 10 a.m.

Ceremony Update: The college will celebrate the Class of 2021 at a single commencement ceremony, 10 a.m., May 11, 2021, at Richardson Stadium. Each graduate is allowed to register for two guest tickets total.

All information is subject to change due to shifting public health guidance.

Commencement Attendance

Each student will be allowed two guests to attend the ceremony. The tickets you have registered for will be honored at the 10 a.m. ceremony, regardless of whether the tickets have 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. printed on them. Guests must have a copy of those tickets in hand to enter the stadium. Unless state guidelines on social distancing change, we will not be able to accommodate additional guests outside of the two guests per graduate.

A live stream of commencement will be available. Live coverage allows students to share this important event with loved ones who are unable to attend the ceremony.


Davidson College welcomes requests for reasonable accommodations related to disability and will strive to make this program accessible to participants. Please contact [email protected] to make such a request.
