Welcome to the University of Cincinnati Commencement website. Graduation at the University of Cincinnati is a multi-step process. The menu on your left will help guide you through the steps necessary to apply for graduation and attend the commencement ceremony.

All participants in Commencement are asked to RSVP when they apply for graduation.

All ceremonies will be held in the Fifth Third Arena and can be expected to last approximately 2-1/2 hours.

We have set up an on-campus location for the live video streaming at the Family Friendly Zone at the Alumni Center.

Immediately following each ceremony, the Commencement Office and the UC Alumni Association host a reception for all graduates and guests at the Russell C. Myers Alumni Center.
