The 2022 Special Commencement Ceremony will last for 45-60 minutes with refreshments following on the lawn at the Norris-Wachob Alumni House.

When appropriate, the Special Commencement ceremony is held to honor graduating student athletes who have completed degree requirements, and whose successful postseason sports schedule will prevent attendance at the regular Commencement exercises. The date for this possible special ceremony is set in advance in order to accommodate the potential athletic teams’ schedules and travel plans. If a team’s season concludes any time before the special ceremony date, student athletes will be able to participate in the regular Commencement ceremony with their classmates. Students and families are encouraged to continue checking this web page for the latest details.

This formal ceremony is a warm celebration of the academic achievements of these outstanding graduating athletes. Caps and gowns are worn and remarks are given by the President, Provost and Faculty Speaker. Following the ceremony, guests and the campus community are invited to a reception with light refreshments.

Please contact the Registrar’s Office directly with any questions regarding degree requirements and diplomas.
