AY2021 Ritsumeikan University Commencement Ceremonies (to be held in March 2022)

The Ritsumeikan University commencement ceremonies for the academic year 2021 will be held, with attendance limited to graduating/completing students.

The ceremonies will be live streamed for graduating/completing students, their families, and current students who cannot attend the event on campus. The live streaming page will be announced on a later date. We sincerely request family members to refrain from entering the campus and to watch the ceremonies via live streaming.

If the COVID-19 situation and social landscape begin to turn around, we will consider the possibility of allowing family members to attend the ceremonies and enter the campus. On the other hand, if the situation gets worse, we may organize the ceremonies online. We will post information on our website as to where or not family members can attend the ceremonies and any change in the ceremony style. Please visit the website to check the latest updates.
We request the understanding and cooperation of those attending in-person with respect to the following points:

  • On the day of the commencement ceremonies, please check your temperature before coming to campus. If you have a fever of 37.5°C or above, or otherwise do not feel well, please refrain from attending. In addition, your temperature will be checked on arrival at the venue. If you are found to have a fever or other symptoms, you may be asked to watch the ceremony from a different room.
  • To avoid the “Three Cs” (i.e., closed spaces, crowded places, close-contact settings) on campus, please refrain from arriving on campus more than one hour before the start time of the event (except when getting robed in a kimono on campus).
  • Please be sure to wear a mask at all times, including on your way to and from the ceremony and while on campus. When taking photos, please ensure that you keep your mask on.
  • Individual diplomas will be conferred to students by their college or graduate school before or after the commencement ceremony. As soon as the event is over, please exit the campus within 30 minutes. Do not stay on campus for an extended period.
  • Please refrain from social gatherings and other kinds of meetings that involve eating and drinking before and after the ceremony. We also ask for your cooperation outside the campus as well by refraining from social gatherings at restaurants from the perspective of preventing the spread of infection.
  • The risk of infection can be significantly reduced by wearing a mask at all times, social distancing, avoiding the “Three Cs,” and refraining from having gatherings that involve eating and drinking. Please ensure that your actions reflect a mental attitude of “protecting yourself from infection and not infecting others.”

The diplomas for graduating/completing students who did not attend the on-campus ceremony due to individual circumstances will be mailed on a later date. Information regarding this procedure will be included in the graduation/completion results announcement.
