Commencement 2024 Weekend

May 18-19, 2024

School-specific ceremony times will be announced in early December.


You are eligible to participate in Commencement 2024 if you:

  • Graduated in Fall 2023
  • Have applied for graduation in Spring 2024
  • Have applied for graduation in Summer 2024

If you haven’t graduated or applied to graduate and have questions about the process, please visit the Office of the Registrar website to learn more.
If you are not eligible to participate in Commencement 2024 and would like to seek an exception, please email, providing your name, major, student ID, and graduation plans. You will receive a message from a contact at the appropriate school within 10 days.

Commencement is a ceremony to honor our annual graduates, but please remember that participation is optional and not the same as graduating from SSU. You will officially graduate after grades have been finalized and only if all degree requirements were completed by the end of the semester you applied to graduate in. Learn more about how to apply to graduate at the Office of the Registrar website.

The Academic Requirements Report (ARR) determines a student's graduation eligibility. The current ‘graduation status’ appears at the top left corner of the ARR. Please contact your graduation team specialist if you have questions or concerns about your graduation status.
