Spring Commencement will be held May 1 on the Alumni Green!

Three ceremonies will be held to accommodate graduates with seating limited to three guests per graduate.

Here’s how we plan to make our modified Spring Commencement memorable and safe:

Spring Commencement will be held outside and in-person rain or shine! In the event of severe thunderstorms, we will postpone the event to the following week.

Three ceremonies will be held to keep crowds small and safe. We will hold three ceremonies — 10 am, Noon, and 2 pm. Seating will be limited to three guests per graduate and tickets will be issued electronically before the event.

Commencement ceremonies will be live-streamed. We know you have a large group of family and friends who want to be with you so we will live-stream the day — and provide videos and social media posts you can share.

Your health and safety is a priority. We want to keep everyone healthy. That means we'll have some new procedures that minimize contact as you walk across the stage. Don't worry. You won't miss the handshakes. 

How will I get my tickets?

You will receive three electronic tickets for your guests. These will be specific to you and your ceremony. We are using the ticketing system used by the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts. Your tickets will arrive in an email from the Vern Riffe Center.
