Commencement Information for Students, Parents, and Guests

May 2022 Commencement

South Dakota Mines Spring 2022 graduation ceremony will take place in person at The Monument Ice Arena on Saturday, May 7 at 9:00 a.m. (MT). No tickets are needed and there is not a limit on the number of guests per graduate. Masks are optional.

The ice in The Monument Ice Arena will still be in place (with flooring over it), so it will be cooler than normal in there on that day. Please dress a little warmer than usual.
