Commemorate Your Graduation:

We understand some graduates or family members may not be able to attend the in-person ceremonies. We are providing many additional opportunities to make this milestone memorable for you and your family. In addition, the ceremonies will be live-streamed so your family and friends around the world can celebrate with you! 

Next Steps:

Over the coming weeks, you will receive important emails regarding tickets, parking, and other day-of details that will be important to review. Please read each of those emails carefully as many will require action. 

We recommend that families do not make non-refundable travel arrangements, as plans may change based on state guidance. In addition, in the case of inclement weather ceremonies will be held virtually. 

We look forward to celebrating with you and your guests at the end of April! There is additional information, including FAQs, on the Commencement website for updates or email the Commencement Office for assistance.

Congratulations again on this outstanding accomplishment! Go Bearcats!
