Commencement May 5 – 6, 2022

Students are reminded of the following responsibilities as we conclude this academic year. There are several programs during commencement week and a number of guests on the campus at that time. Please arrive at the various programs in enough time for the ushers to seat everyone.


University students are required to attend each event listed below:

7 p.m.           Baccalaureate (FMA)

8:30 a.m.      University Awards Program (FMA)
2 p.m.           2022 Commencement (FMA)

Day students who live more than 30 miles from the campus may be excused from the baccalaureate service unless they are graduating.

Day students may obtain an exemption for chapel, society, and the awards program during commencement week for regularly scheduled work consistent with their semester work schedule. Students may miss the baccalaureate service and commencement for regularly scheduled work only if their jobs will continue during the summer. Those whose jobs do not continue through the summer are to attend baccalaureate and commencement.

Students who need to arrive late or leave a program early because of work should go to Levinson Hall for that program.


Class dress is appropriate during the day, and casual dress is appropriate after 5 p.m. Formal dress is required for baccalaureate and commencement (men: coats and ties; women: skirt and blouse or dress).


Please be aware that the regulations for on-campus social life remain the same throughout exams/commencement week. See the student handbook.

Meal Schedule

The dining common and Den meal schedule during commencement week will be available on the intranet.
