2020 Commencement Ceremony We know commencement is a special tradition. And while the 2020 winter and summer semesters have been interrupted in ways that we couldn’t have imagined, Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School faculty and staff want to celebrate your hard work and accomplishments. We will host a virtual 2020 Commencement Ceremony on Friday, August 21, 2020 at 1:30 p.m. Although there will not be an in-person ceremony in August due to COVID-19, we hope you'll join us on August 21 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 in late June or early July containing details about the virtual commencement and how you can participate.
