Commencement is the formal ceremony that is held to recognize & honor candidates for graduation. It's the most significant academic event for students & the entire university community, as it is the culmination of years of hard work and personal & financial investment for students & 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.)
