Commencement Ceremony Details

Reception Details

Prior to the ceremony, we will hold a reception in the Wilbur Cross North and South Reading Rooms from 3:00-5:00 pm. Students and their families are invited to participate in this festive event and to meet with faculty and staff members. You do not need to RSVP for this event.

Ceremony Details

Candidates for the ceremony will report to the Field House by 5:00 pm; Gampel will open its doors to family and friends at 5:00 pm as well. Graduates will be limited to 10 guest tickets each for the Commencement Ceremony. If you are in need of additional tickets, you must email and include your name, cell phone number, and number of additional tickets you are requesting. All names will be added to a wait-list, and as Commencement grows closer our office will contact you regarding your request. Please note, being placed on the wait-list does not guarantee extra tickets. We will do our best to meet all reasonable requests.
