Registration for Redbird Stage Crossing
Although gathering restrictions due to COVID-19 impact the ability to hold traditional commencement ceremonies in spring 2021, the University has planned an alternative in-person celebratory experience for graduates—a Redbird Stage Crossing.
Beginning in mid-February, spring/summer 2021 graduates and all 2020 graduates will have an opportunity to register for a late April or early May personalized Redbird Stage Crossing in Redbird Arena.
In addition to the Redbird Stage Crossing, Illinois State University is honoring spring and summer 2021 graduates with online ceremonies featuring slide shows of graduates and remarks by President Dietz and other Illinois State officials. These recorded ceremonies will be available for viewing the first week of May.
How do I register for the Redbird Stage Crossing?
All students who have applied for Spring/summer 2021 graduation and winter 2020 graduates will receive an email to their Illinois State University email address in mid-February with a Redbird Stage Crossing registration form. Spring 2020 graduates need to complete the 2020 Graduate Communication Form with their personal (not Illinois State) email address by February 26 to receive the Redbird Stage Crossing registration email.
