Q1. What are the COVID-19 Safe Management Measures during NUS Commencement?

To mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the following safe management measures will be implemented during Commencement 2022 and must be strictly observed by all participants:

          Before the Event

  1. Graduates must register their attendance via the Education Records System (myEduRec) (Academics > Commencement Registration) by 30 April 2022.


  2. All guests to the event must be registered before attending the ceremony. No walk-in guests will be permitted to attend the ceremony.

  3. Attendees must be fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 within the past 180 days of the event date or certified to be medically ineligible for all vaccines under the National Vaccination Programme.

On the Day of the Ceremony

  1. Graduates should proceed to the Registration area with your guests (if any) for the following:
    • Verify Vaccination Status via TraceTogether or HealthHub app.
    • Scan the QR code of your email invite
    • Present your ID (i.e., NRIC or Passport) for verification.

    *Note: Please exercise personal responsibility and conduct self-testing if you or your guest(s) feel unwell or had recent contact with an infected person, and to follow the necessary health protocols if tested positive.

  2. Graduates and guests who have successfully completed the checks shall proceed to UCC Ho Bee Auditorium.

    The following measures must always be observed:
    • Face masks must be worn indoors throughout the event, even when taking photographs.
    • There will be no handshakes or other forms of physical contact on-stage during the presentation of graduates.

Q2. I am currently not in Singapore. What must I do to attend the Commencement ceremony in person at NUS Singapore?

Your attendance at the in-person Commencement ceremony is subject to your approval to enter Singapore. Due to the fluid COVID-19 situation globally, Singapore’s border control and health measures are subject to changes at any time. Information on the latest measures regarding entry into Singapore is available at this link: Immigration & Checkpoints Authority – SafeTravel

Graduates and their guests who can travel to Singapore and plan to attend the Commencement ceremony should factor in the time required for approval of their entry into Singapore (if applicable), pre-departure and/or arrival swab test, or any other conditions imposed by the authorities.

Q3. Can my batchmates/other guests and I take photo before and after the ceremony?

Participants can take personal photographs but must remain masked. To prevent crowding and unnecessary intermingling due to photo taking, there should be no more than 10 persons in the photo.
