The Main Ceremony is the only ceremony for summer commencement.

Main Ceremony

The main ceremony is the last time that the entire graduating class gathers as one to celebrate commencement. During the event, degrees for all graduates will be conferred, and doctoral students will be hooded and will receive their diplomas individually.

Senior College Diploma Ceremonies

Diploma ceremonies for each senior college recognize bachelor’s and master’s degree students. Students’ names are called and they walk across the stage to receive their diplomas individually.
