Congratulations! Graduation from college, whether you are earning a baccalaureate or advanced degree, is a major event in your life. It is an acknowledgment of your hard work, perseverance and achievement.

Commencement day is a time when you, your family, your guests and the university will all celebrate your success. To help you prepare for Commencement, we've provided the information you'll need, so the day itself can truly be a memorable, joyous occasion. We want you to enjoy the ceremony, and we also want you to be well informed about what each graduate needs to do in advance.

We've provided details about directions, maps and parking for you and your guests. You can connect to the University Store to order your cap and gown, and other graduation materials. Please review academic information if you have questions about academic eligibility. There's even an FAQ with short, quick answers to the questions everyone seems to ask.
