Graduation Ceremonies - Guest Information graduation cap

UVU holds one graduation celebration a year at the end of Spring Semester. UVU's 77th annual graduation celebration will be held May 3 & 4, 2018. Two types of graduation ceremonies will be held: Commencement (May 3rd - main ceremony for all graduates) and Convocations (May 4th - 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.

Please contact the student/graduate to verify the times and locations of the ceremonies in which they are participating.
