Schedule of Commencement Events

University Mace

2016 Commencement is on Monday, May 9.  The all-schools central ceremony on the Quadrangle starts at 9:00 a.m.

This schedule is currently being updated.  Items marked below with an asterisk are tentative and are based on the 2015 Commencement schedule, but can be used as a general overview of the types of events that are likely to take place for 2016. 

Helpful tip:  When booking your travel, it is helpful to know that the majority of graduation receptions and ceremonies open to family and guests are on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (May 7-9) with the bulk of the events on Sunday and Monday.  We recommend avoiding early afternoon return travel on Monday (evening travel is better) in case ceremonies are delayed because of weather.  

We recommend you visit this site frequently for event updates as details are subject to change throughout the spring semester.
