School of Education Graduation
- The School of Education ceremony is just for our credential,
master’s, Ph.D. and Ed.D. students, and the program is focused on
the education field rather than being for a general audience.
- All students are presented by their primary faculty
adviser/supervisor and receive a cord or stole placed over the
shoulders. Ph.D. and Ed.D. students are not hooded at this
- If you have any questions about the School of Education
ceremony, please feel free to contact the graduation staff at
Graduate Studies Commencement
- All master’s and doctoral students will receive information
directly from Graduate Studies regarding registration for the
Graduate Studies commencement. For more information, visit
Graduate Studies commencement.
- The Graduate Studies commencement will be held the day
after the School of Education graduation, June 15 at the
University Credit Union Center (previously called the ARC
Pavilion). ONLY register for Graduate Studies if you plan on
- If you do plan to participate in both ceremonies, please hold
on to your rental cap and gown after the School of Education
graduation to wear at the Graduate Studies commencement the next
day. Returns will be available at the University Credit Union
Center after the Graduate Studies ceremony.
