A Message From President Trauth on May Commencment

"For Bobcats planning to graduate in May, I know you are concerned about spring commencement ceremonies. We are moving spring ceremonies to August 6 and 8 to coincide with summer commencement. An updated schedule of those ceremonies will be available soon here I am so proud of our students graduating in May, and look forward to celebrating that achievement with you and your families in August.  It is important to remember if you are eligible to graduate at the end of this spring semester, you will still receive your degree and a diploma even if you are not able to participate in the rescheduled commencement ceremonies."


Commencement for the College of Applied Arts, will be held on Saturday, August 8th, at 10 am at the Strahan Arena at the University Events Center (UEC).

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the May 2020 Hooding Ceremony and Commencement will be postponed until August 2020.
