The 2015 Undergraduate Commencement ceremonies will take place on Friday, May 15 and Saturday, May 16, in the Alumni Arena, Park Center. Three ceremonies will be held — Ceremony 1 at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Ceremony 2 at 9:30 a.m. and Ceremony 3 at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Students will select their ceremony online. Please note, as in the past, ceremony selection is on a first come, first served basis. You will only have access to the online site if you have applied for graduation.  Selection will take place on March 24th.  You will receive an email in Decemeber with all of the detailed information on the online ticketing process.  

In order to participate in Commencement you must purchase a diploma cover through the online ticketing process. Please have a credit card ready. The diploma cover is linked to your Student Line-Up Ticket, which you must bring with you the day of Commencement. You should have received a detailed checklist outlining the steps to select your Commencement ceremony and all items you must purchase in order to participate in Commencement. The diploma cover will be handed to you as you walk across the stage. 

Please note: All Undergraduate Commencement tickets will be scanned at the stadium entrance. Each ticket has a unique bar code that can be scanned only once. The first copy of an E-Ticket (if there are multiple copies made) to arrive at the event will gain entry after scanning and validation. Other copies of this ticket will be denied entry. You should handle this E-Ticket as you would any other valuable or cash. Please be very cautious if someone offers to sell you this document. it has no official resale value and may be an unauthorized copy.
