Dear Graduates,

The new Atlantic Union Bank Center has proven to be a successful venue for commencement ceremonies, as demonstrated this past September. Due to the high seating capacity in the Atlantic Union Bank Center, the Graduate School ceremony, originally scheduled for Friday, December 17th at 7:00 p.m., will now be combined with the Undergraduate ceremony held on Saturday, December 18th at 10:00 a.m.

All students participating in the commencement ceremony will need to request tickets for their family and friends. Graduates may request up to six (6) tickets and will automatically receive a ticket for themselves in order to enter into the arena.

All graduates and guests will be required to wear masks during the commencement ceremony, regardless of vaccination status. The graduates will have an opportunity to remove their masks for photographs as they cross the stage. The safety, health and well-being of students, staff and their families is our top priority.

If you have concerns or questions about this change, please contact us to discuss.
