The Office of Student Affairs is in charge of staging the college's annual Commencement Ceremony, which is traditionally held on the last Thursday or Friday of May. Graduates from the Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and Spring 2020 will be eligible to attend the ceremony. Approximately 300-325 graduates participate in the commencement ceremony each year.
All candidates for graduation must file a petition in the Admissions and Records Office by the ninth week of the semester they wish to graduate. The specific dates are listed in the class schedule each semester. Please refer to the Petitioning for Graduation website for more details and check out the Counseling website for more information on their Graduation Petition Workshops.
The 77th Annual Commencement will be held on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 6:00 PM on the Library Plaza Green (the green lawn in front of the 2000 Life Science Building).
