Arizona State University will hold its first in-person spring graduation since 2019, according to a news release from the university. 

Nearly 18,400 ASU students will graduate this spring — a 3% increase from spring 2021 — including nearly 6,000 ASU Online students.

Of the overall student total, more than 12,700 are undergraduate and more than 5,000 are graduate students. About 9,552 of the new spring graduates are Arizona residents, a 2% increase. In addition, there’s an 8% increase in ASU Online degrees compared with spring 2021, the university said. 

This year’s graduation ceremonies run May 7 through 13 across ASU's many campuses. Graduate commencement is at 9 a.m. on May 9, at Desert Financial Arena, followed by undergraduate commencement at 7:30 p.m. at Sun Devil Stadium.

A list of others can be found online.

Lonnie G. Bunch III, secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, and former Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth V. McGregor will be the speakers for undergraduate and graduate commencement, respectively. They will receive honorary degrees at those ceremonies as well.
