TU is committed to addressing climate change and creating a more sustainable future. In an effort to honor our mission to reduce waste, the Commencement program will be provided in a digital format at the ceremony.
Towson University holds Commencement ceremonies in May and December to celebrate graduates and their accomplishments.
The Office of the Provost hosts six ceremonies each spring and three ceremonies each winter to celebrate bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral candidates who have completed all of their degree requirements. All ceremonies are held in TU Arena.
Although ceremonies are held indoors, if severe weather is in the forecast, university administrators may postpone the ceremony. In the case of postponement, the university will make every effort to reschedule the ceremony in as close proximity to the original date as possible. Weather-related announcements will appear on TU's social media accounts and this website.
