Ceremony information

The 2020 Graduation ceremony takes place on Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. in the upper-campus quad and stage area. Although run times vary based on the number of graduates participating in commencement, the average ceremony run time is approximately two hours.
 

How to participate

Faculty, staff, and administrators can participate in graduation in a couple ways:

  1. Walk in the processional. Those who wish to participate in the processional and sit with our students during the ceremony are required to wear regalia. The Student Activities Office rents formal regalia from Herff Jones for those who do not possess their own graduate regalia. Please complete the processional sign-up form to have regalia ordered on your behalf (please complete by Thursday, April 2, 2020 to ensure regalia is ordered and received on time).
     
  2. Volunteer at the ceremony. Volunteers are needed for set-up, event management, and clean-up on Friday, May 15. View the list of volunteer opportunities and sign up for a slot that works with your schedule! Volunteers are asked to sign up by Friday, May 8, 2020.
