Department Graduations

While the campuswide commencement ceremony in May is for all graduates and their families, the smaller, more personal department graduations occur separately over the course of approximately two weeks. Department graduations occur during the spring semester only.

Each school, college, or department plans its own ceremony, in which each graduate walks across the stage to receive a commemorative certificate. Check back in January for Spring 2019 information. The list below may not reflect the most up-to-date event details, so we encourage you to contact your department for more information.
