Graduation Ceremonies - Guest Information graduation cap

UVU holds one graduation celebration a year at the end of Spring Semester. UVU's 74th annual graduation celebration will be held April 30 & May 1, 2015. Two types of graduation ceremonies will be held: Commencement (April 30th - main ceremony for all graduates - tickets are required for guests to attend Commencement) and Convocations (May 1st - college/school ceremonies - individual graduate recognition - tickets are not required for guests to attend Convocation). 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.
