Important information regarding KU's Spring Commencement Ceremonies

Feb. 20, 2017

Dear KU Campus Community,

In an effort to enhance our spring commencement ceremonies, the following changes will be implemented beginning this May.

The Graduate Degree Ceremony for all colleges (ONLY students receiving master's degrees) will be moved to Friday night, May 12 at 5 p.m. at O'Pake Fieldhouse.

Saturday morning's undergraduate ceremonies will be held as scheduled, although the order of colleges will be changed.  The 9 a.m. ceremony will include graduates receiving bachelor's degrees from the College of Education and the College of Liberal Arts and Science.    The 2 p.m. ceremony will include graduates receiving bachelor's degrees from the College of Business and the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

These changes will allow us to streamline all three ceremonies, offer more guest seats, and improve traffic flow for the undergraduate ceremonies on Saturday.

Please adjust your calendars accordingly.   More information will be forthcoming regarding Spring Commencement in the very near future.

Sincerely,

Dr. Anne Zayaitz
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
