June Commencement Schedule »


Registration and Ticketing Information Registration for Commencement opened the week of April 1; (dates and times vary by school and degree).    REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to participate in Commencement. Registration is required so that graduates can provide updated information that is necessary for planning purposes and ticketing. It is very important that graduates register before registration closes. Late registrations will only be accepted if space is available in their ceremony. Once a ceremony has reached capacity, the ceremony’s registration will close.  Graduates are not eligible to participate in a June ceremony if they attended a previous ceremony. Graduates that are a multiple major across different schools will chose which school ceremony they want to participate in during the registration process. The registration system will give you an option until a ceremony reaches capacity.
