Have a question regarding the University Commencement Ceremonies?  

The University Commencement Ceremonies are managed by a separate division within The University Registrar’s Office.

For more information pertaining to the the University Ceremony, itself, please check out Commencement Central.

Undergraduate Graduation Candidates, who have already applied to graduate, and wish to participate in the University Ceremony, should RSVP.

     Information pertaining to departmental ceremonies should be directed to the Graduation Candidate’s major department. 


–  Baccalaureate degrees are awarded three times per year – May, August and December.  

– Degree candidates will neither earn degrees nor be graduated from the university until they have completed all degree requirements and have officially applied for graduation. Participation in a commencement ceremony does not presume graduation from the university.
