Providence Commencement

2023 Commencement

Commencement is the formal ceremony that is held to recognize and honor candidates for graduation. It's the most significant academic event for students and the entire university community, as it is the culmination of years of hard work and personal and financial investment for students and families alike. These ceremonies celebrate the traditional observances that accompany one of the highest rewards of academic achievement. (Refer to the Student Handbook for eligibility to participate/be included in commencement.)

We host two ceremonies, which are summarized below. Please plan accordingly and review the other pages on this site for detailed information and arrival instructions. Thank you!
