Commencement is the pinnacle of academic success — representing years of hard work, dedication and commitment.

Held twice a year, commencement is an opportunity for our graduates to share the excitement and importance of their academic accomplishments with classmates, family, and friends. It is also a time for the University’s Board of Trustees and campus community to pay special tribute to our graduates for the outstanding effort they have shown in earning their degree.

We are continuing to work on details of the 2021 Spring Commencement ceremony, including whether or not guests will be allowed to attend. Please check this page periodically as we move closer to the May 15, 2021, Commencement ceremony for updates.
