Commencement  2022 Makeup Ceremonies

Thank you to those who completed our recent undergraduate commencement survey. Based upon your feedback, we are moving forward with plans to invite you back to campus to participate in one of three makeup commencement ceremonies:

  • Friday, Aug. 26 at 10 a.m. 
  • Saturday, Aug. 27 at 10 a.m. 
  • Saturday Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. 

All ceremonies will be held indoors at the University Credit Union Center. All Spring 2022 graduates, regardless of their college or major, and who registered for June commencement are welcome to participate in one of the three upcoming ceremonies.

Consistent with the commencement survey feedback, please expect a traditional ceremony format with students crossing the stage and having their names read. Graduates will be allotted up to four guaranteed guest tickets upon registration and may request additional tickets, if available. Additionally, the ceremonies will be livestreamed as well as viewable online following the ceremonies.

This opportunity is open to all graduates who were registered for one of the three Spring 2022 undergraduate commencement ceremonies. A new registration is required. To register online, please select one of the three makeup ceremonies by Aug. 22, 2022.
