APU Commencement COVID-19 Information

As breakthrough cases are anticipated, graduates, students, guests, faculty, staff, and others who feel ill, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have potential exposure to someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 should not attend commencement.

At this time, there are no state, county, or APU requirements to prove vaccination status or show a negative test result for entry to indoor or outdoor events of any size. Instead, we rely on our mutual commitment to care for ourselves and our neighbors to guide attendance.

Individuals traveling domestically or internationally to attend commencement in L.A. County should follow the L.A. County Department of Public Health Travel Advisory.

Masks are encouraged but are not required, for students, guests, faculty, or staff. Masks are recommended for individuals at higher risk of severe illness if they cannot maintain distance from others. Should you need a mask, APU will provide one at the information tent on the day of commencement ceremonies.
