Commencement

Student walking across stage for graduation

Spring Commencement Weekend

May 8-9, 2020

Spring Commencement weekend includes the University Commencement Ceremony as well as individual ceremonies for each College and School.

At the individual College and School ceremonies, the names of all degree candidates will be announced and each graduating student will walk across the stage. Bachelor candidates will receive their diploma cover and honor cords, as applicable. Master and Specialist candidates will receive their diploma covers. Doctoral students will be hooded at these ceremonies.

The entire graduating class and their guests will gather for the main University Commencement Ceremony, at which President Tony Waldrop will confer the degrees upon all graduating students, the commencement speaker will deliver an address, and doctoral students will receive their diplomas and diploma covers.

Graduation regalia (caps and gowns) from the University’s approved vendor is required for all commencement ceremonies.
