Commencement Ceremony in March 2021 and Conferment of Diplomas

This is to announce that we have decided to hold our Spring 2021 Commencement Ceremony online via Zoom because many of the participating graduates would have to move across prefectural borders to attend, which would make it difficult to implement sufficient COVID-19 risk reduction countermeasures.

Additionally, this will be a joint online ceremony for those who have graduated in August 2019, in 2020, and for those who will be graduating in March 2021.

We understand that graduating students and their family members must be disappointed to hear this announcement, as Commencement is one of the precious moments in students’ lives. Nevertheless, it is of our utmost importance that the graduates be prepared to embrace the next step in their lives in full health. Accordingly, we would like to ask for everyone’s kind understanding and cooperation.

AIU will contact all graduates who will participate in the ceremony separately with details, including information about how to participate and how to view the ceremony online for family members and friends.

Finally and most importantly, congratulations to you all!
