All College Commencement FAQs

We invite all graduates, families and friends to attend both ceremonies to fully experience the pomp and circumstance, and joy and pride, that marks one of the most memorable times in a student’s life. This two-part celebration will include the 90-minute All Campus Commencement during which Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla will officially confer degrees by academic division upon graduates gathered as one student body on RIMAC Field.

In addition, the six undergraduate Colleges, Graduate Division and professional schools will host personalized Graduation Ceremonies for their students, where graduates will be recognized by name as they walk across the stage. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
