Commencement 101

A primer for graduates

Commencement 101 forums are designed to give graduating students the basics of what you need to know to prepare for graduation and Commencement Weekend.  Topics we cover include the major weekend events, registration, tickets, the main ceremony, departmental ceremonies, regalia, disability accommodations, and parking.  There is an opportunity to ask questions during and after the forum. Sessions will take place in December and January.  Attendance is optional and you need only attend one session as the content is the same.

Upcoming Sessions
