Commencement Ceremony

Divisional & Departmental Events

About 30 minutes after the college-wide Quad ceremony ends, many divisional and departmental ceremonies are held. They usually last an hour or less and are conducted by divisional deans or department chairs.

The ceremonies which will require tickets are the Division of Education and Linguistics and Communication Disorders (taking place about 30 minutes after the college-wide ceremony). If you are in one of these departments, please contact them directly for more information on obtaining education tickets.
