- Graduation Week is traditionally comprised of many activities and events across the U.S. Air Force Academy. Cadets and their guests take part in receptions, award ceremonies, baccalaureate services, concerts, parades, air demonstrations, and commissioning ceremonies. The week culminates at Falcon Stadium with the Graduation Ceremony. Speakers rotate between the President of the United States, Vice President, Secretary of Defense and Secretary of the Air Force. At the close of the ceremony, cadets are dismissed and ceremoniously toss their caps into the air. Cheers and celebration are quickly silenced by the roar of the legendary Thunderbirds flying overhead to honor the graduating class.
The Class of 2021 graduation is scheduled for Wednesday, May 26, 2021. Each graduating cadet will be allowed 8 guests for the graduation ceremony. Guests must sit together in assigned, non-socially distanced seating. No ticket trading will be permitted. Guests will also be tentatively permitted to attend the Parade, Commissioning ceremonies and award ceremonies.
Graduation will be live-streamed via this web-page, including the traditional Thunderbird flyover! The 20th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, will be the commencement speaker. As one of the few universities in the nation planning to have an in-person graduation ceremony with guests, we appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility.
