 The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is requiring graduates to get tested for COVID-19. Officials said each grad must test negative one-to-three days before the ceremony, even if they have already been vaccinated. Commencement will take place on May Seventh and Eighth at Memorial Stadium and Pinnacle Bank Arena. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced cancellation of May graduation ceremonies at the state's four University of Nebraska system campuses. Officials say the Lincoln campus intends to hold an online event, and the May graduates have been invited to attend August, December, May 2021 ceremonies or other future commencement. University of Nebraska at Omaha graduates will be recognized through an online streaming commencement on May 8. The Kearney campus plans to combine commencements for spring and summer graduates on July 31.
