A Message from the Dean of the College of Science

Check the university commencement web page for updates and additional information about the 2020 and 2021 ceremonies. Or visit the FAQ page.

Early Commencement Participation (ECP) is available to students that meet certain criteria and will not be completing their graduation requirements at the end of Spring Semester.  
PLEASE NOTE:  The ECP option is only available if there is a Spring Commencement ceremony; therefore, the Spring 2021 ECP application will not be opened until a timeline for the Spring 2021 Commencement ceremony is determined.

The University’s priority is to ensure the safety and security of our students, their families, and friends.   We will post updates on the Registrar’s Office website, and we will communicate with you about future opportunities to participate in Commencement as more information becomes available.

Students must check-in one hour before ceremony at corner of University Drive and Mansion Lane.
All ceremonies are held at the University Quad.  All Bags are Subject to Search.
