Many of FAMU's 2021 Homecoming events were held outdoors, and attendees were encouraged to take appropriate precautions to ensure the health and safety of students and other attendees. The Commencement ceremony will be held indoors and will occur after Thanksgiving. This may present heightened risks for students returning to campus who may have potentially been exposed to COVID-19. 

Students are required to participate in the ceremony in which they have applied for graduation. For example, if a student applie for graduation during the Fall term, they are only able to participate in the Fall Commencement ceremony. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
