Graduation Ceremonies - Guest Information graduation cap

UVU holds one graduation celebration a year at the end of Spring Semester. UVU's 75th annual graduation celebration will be held April 28 & 29, 2016. Two types of graduation ceremonies will be held: Commencement (April 28th - main ceremony for all graduates) and Convocations (April 29th - college/school ceremonies - individual graduate recognition). There is no cost to attend any of the ceremonies. Parking is located in the UCCU Events Center parking lot. Due to limited seating and space, guests must remain in guest seating and will not be allowed in the graduate line-up or seating areas. Please contact the student/graduate to verify the times and locations of the ceremonies in which they are participating.
