(AP) — Gonzaga University is planning five in-person commencement ceremonies this year.
The Spokesman-Review reports the outdoor ceremonies are scheduled for May 8-9 at Union Stadium, the Mead School District’s new 4,500-seat venue just north of Spokane.
Gonzaga President Thayne McCulloh said the college was given guidance for in-person ceremonies as part of Phase 3 of Washington’s coronavirus reopening plan.
Gonzaga’s graduations were rescheduled and reformatted last year due to the pandemic, taking place virtually over the Labor Day weekend.
This year’s commencement ceremonies for the School of Law and graduate programs are thus far scheduled for Saturday, May 8, the university announced Monday.
Undergraduate ceremonies will take place Sunday, May 9.
The ceremonies will be livestreamed and recorded.
McCulloh said Gonzaga is working with the Spokane Regional Health District to plan the events.
Several COVID-19 restrictions are anticipated, including mask requirements and physical distancing.
The university said graduates will be allowed to invite at least three, possibly four, guests depending on the number of participating graduates.

On March 22, President Thayne McCulloh, announced via email that graduation commencement 2021 would take place in-person and outside.
“We are pleased to announce that, with the move to Phase 3 under Washington’s Road to Recovery Plan, we have been given guidance that will allow for in-person degree-granting ceremonies,” the email said.
The ceremonies will be held at Mead School District’s Union Stadium, which accommodates 4,500 people.
McCulloh asked that everyone be prepared for the weather, as indoor gatherings of this size are still not allowed in Washington State.
There will be five commencement ceremonies.
One for the Law School, one for Graduate degrees and three for Undergraduate.
The graduate schools ceremonies will take place on May 8 and undergrad on May 9.
McCulloh said more specifics will come in the following weeks.
Students are asked to abide by the COVID-19 protocols while at the ceremonies and are currently allowed to bring three, possibly four guests with them.
“Holding multiple ceremonies will allow each graduate to invite at least three (3) and possibly four (4) guests to the ceremony,” McCulloh said.
“The number of guests a given student may invite will be a function of how many graduates elect to participate in the ceremonies.”
McCulloh urged students to take the survey sent in the email by Thursday, March 25, to help the school plan better for the ceremonies.
