Spring Commencement: Graduate

We are deeply disappointed that our graduating Blazers will not experience a traditional commencement this spring, but we will do everything we can to recognize and celebrate your accomplishments. Details of each virtual/alternative commencement will be communicated in the coming days and weeks.

Spring Commencement is traditionally split into three ceremonies: 

  • Friday evening for graduate students; 
  • Saturday morning for undergraduates from Arts & Sciences and Education;
  • Saturday afternoon for undergraduates from Business, Engineering, Health Professions, Nursing, and Public Health.

Be sure you are making plans for the correct ceremony.
