Commencement ceremonies occur in the spring and winter, and degree candidates are invited to participate in the college ceremony in which their degree program falls.
Commencement is a traditional university ceremony celebrating the accomplishments of our degree candidates. Academic degrees date from the second half of the 12th century. The present ceremony recognizing scholarly achievement retains all the essential features of its ancient predecessors.
Towson University awards academic degrees at the bachelor’s, master and doctoral levels. The university also awards post-baccalaureate certificates and certificates of advanced study. Degrees are symbolically conferred during Commencement, and candidates completing all degree requirements successfully receive their diplomas four to six weeks after the ceremony.
The Office of the Provost seeks nominations for undergraduate commencement speakers for the Fall 2022 graduation ceremony. Nominations will be accepted 10/12/2022 - 11/2/2022. Students can self-nominate, nominate another student, and/or be nominated by a faculty or staff member. Nominations will be collected by the Office of the Provost and then shared with the nominees’ respective colleges. After selecting a speaker from the nominees, the college will report their undergraduate commencement speaker to the Office of the Provost by 11/30/22 .
