Undergraduate Commencement

The 2014 Undergraduate Commencement ceremonies will take place on Saturday, May 17, in the Park Center Alumni Arena. Two ceremonies will be held—Ceremony A at 9:30 a.m. and Ceremony B at 2:30 p.m.

Students will select their ceremony online this year.  On March 24 at 6 a.m. the link will go live and you will be able to select your Commencement Ceremony.  Please note, as in the past, Ceremony selection (A at 9:30 a.m. or B at 2:30 p.m.) is on a first come, first served basis.  You will only have access to this site if you have applied for graduation. In order to participate in Commencement you must purchase a diploma cover through the online ticketing process.  The diploma cover is linked to your Student Line-Up Ticket (which you must bring with you the day of Commencement).  The diploma cover will be handed to you as you walk across the stage.  Please have a credit card ready. As March 24th gets closer, you will receive a detailed check list outlining the steps to select your Commencement Ceremony and all items you must purchase in order to participate in Commencement. 

Please note all Undergraduate Commencement tickets will be scanned at the door. The unique bar code on this ticket allows only one entry to the event. 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.
