Twice each year, Capella University graduates and their guests come together from all over the world to celebrate the incredible achievements of our graduates. Families, friends, and guests: this is your go-to spot for commencement information, updates and more.


In light of guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local public health protocols, and undertaking measures to safeguard the health of our learners, faculty and staff, to limit potential exposure to COVID-19 Capella University is cancelling the in-person San Antonio commencement scheduled for August 29, 2020. Please contact for specific questions. We regret having to make this decision, but the safety of the entire Capella community is our top priority.
