Wake Forest University and Salem Academy and College have announced plans for in-person graduation ceremonies this spring. 

Wake Forest will be holding all of its undergraduate commencement events on Sunday, May 16.

According to a university statement, graduating seniors will be honored at a series of smaller-than-usual ceremonies of about 250 students apiece. The venue and guest speakers have yet to be announced.

A statewide order limiting gathering sizes means the school will not be holding its traditional ceremony at Hearn Plaza. Ticketing will be limited to two guests per graduate.

A special ceremony to honor all undergraduates will be held that evening at Truist Field, the school's football stadium.

Salem College will hold its in-person commencement ceremony Saturday, May 8 at Truist Stadium in downtown Winston-Salem. Salem Academy, which caters to girls in grades 9 through 12, will host an on-campus graduation on May 29.
