About the ceremony

The School of Science invites graduating students and their guests to a School of Science Commencement Ceremony, which will follow the University ceremony. All students are individually recognized as they cross the stage. M.S. and Ph.D. students will be hooded at the School of Science ceremony by the student’s academic department chairperson or faculty advisor/mentor.
