Commencement

Commencement

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.
