Spring Ceremonies

All ceremonies are ticketed events and tickets can only be claimed by the graduating student. Students must graduate with members of their faculty. For unique exceptions, written requests may be submitted prior to May 1. Venue constraints and other variables will be taken into consideration in reviewing such requests.

We look forward to celebrating the nearly 10,000 alumni who comprise the graduating classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022. Check out the ceremony dates and times for the following graduating classes:
