Ceremony Information: While this ceremony will be different than in the past, including limited tickets and social distancing measures observed at all times, we believe we can celebrate our graduates’ milestone while still prioritizing the health and safety of all attendees. To ensure proper social distancing, students are limited to six tickets each. Students will be emailed a link to request tickets that can be transferred to their guests. Masks must be worn at all times while in the Thomas and Mack. For guests who cannot attend in person, the ceremony will be livestreamed via the Touro University Nevada YouTube channel. The link will be posted to this webpage and the social media pages on the morning of the ceremony. While no food is allowed in the arena, guests are encouraged to bring their own water bottles. Concessions will not be open during the event due to current COVID-19 restrictions. 


Touro holds a winter and spring commencement ceremony each year. There are a number of responsibilities and requirements, from applying for graduation to ordering your cap and gown, that need to be completed to ensure this final step is as seamless as possible.

A comprehensive list of information is provided to help facilitate your graduation process. From announcements to photographs, the information is here for you.
