Winter Commencement Ceremony

Commencement is a university-wide ceremony for students who have completed all degree requirements. At this ceremony, Doctoral candidates will be recognized by name and will cross the stage to receive their degree.

Bachelors and Masters degree candidates will NOT be announced individually or cross the stage at Commencement. These graduates will be recognized as a group by their degree and major at their seats. This winter, you are invited to take part in the degree celebrations later this day for CHSS Bachelors and Masters graduates (see information below).
