The university commencement ceremony will be Friday, May 13, at 8:30 a.m. College specific ceremonies will take place between Saturday, May 7, and Sunday, May 15. Most ceremonies will take place in Lane Stadium unless otherwise noted. 

Previously, ceremonies were held in venues across campus, some at the departmental level. Changes to the schedule were made in collaboration with stakeholders across campus. 

By moving the events to Lane Stadium, space for graduates and those celebrating them will no longer be limited. Capacity limits for commencement ceremonies will adhere to public health guidelines.
