The main Commencement (university-wide) ceremony is held on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. in Zable Stadium (or Kaplan Arena in case of rain or excessive heat). Degrees are conferred by degree group and only those receiving PhD and EdD degrees will be recognized by name. No diplomas are presented at this ceremony.
