2021 Commencement Ceremony We know commencement is a special tradition, and the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School faculty and staff want to celebrate your hard work and accomplishments. We will host a virtual 2021 Commencement Ceremony on Friday, April 23, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. Central Standard Time. Although there will not be an in-person ceremony in April due to COVID-19 health and safety concerns, we hope you'll join us on April 23 to celebrate our graduates and confer their degrees. We look forward to seeing you at our next in-person commencement ceremony in the future. Graduate Participation Students eligible to participate in commencement will receive an email containing details about the virtual commencement and how you can participate.
