Since our first Commencement ceremony in 1924, thousands of graduates, their families and friends have gathered to celebrate the achievements of our academic community.
Our Commencement ceremony for all graduate-level programs will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2013, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Richard Wackar Stadium.
A downloadable PDF copy of the Commencement Visitors' Guide will be available soon. You can visit the University's Online Visitors' Center here for general information, including maps, parking information, local restaurants and hotels, fun facts and more.
Guest parking is available in Lots A, B, C, D and M-1. Special needs parking will be available in designated areas throughout Lots C and D for the Graduate Commencement ceremony.

Tickets are not required for admission to Wackar Stadium. However, each degree candidate will be issued four (4) tickets for his or her ceremony once the Office of University Events receives the completed online attendance confirmation card. Tickets will be mailed in late April to the address provided online. Tickets are necessary in the event of inclement weather, as the ceremony will then be held in Esbjornson Gymnasium. Further information is available here.
