Commencement

Commencement is split into two ceremonies:

  • Friday evening for graduate students;
  • Saturday morning for undergraduates.

Be sure you are making plans for the correct ceremony.

Doors open 1 hour prior to each ceremony. University officials recommend guests arrive early and leave non-essential bags at home or in the car; mandatory checks of all bags entering Bartow Arena could slow entry.

Students must arrive at Bell-Wallace Gymnasium, corner of 6th Avenue and 13th Street S, to line up no later than one hour prior to the ceremony. Students should have their caps and gowns already on. Masters students should have their hoods on, and doctoral students should carry their hoods.

See the UAB Commencement website for additional details.
