School and Departmental Ceremonies

In addition to the official Commencement ceremony at Husky Stadium, there are over 100 school, college, departmental, and student organization graduation celebrations that generally take place during the week before Commencement or on the morning of Commencement Day.  We are currently reaching out to these schools and departments to obtain information about any ceremonies they are planning for the classes of 2020 and 2021. As that information becomes available (in March and April), links to graduation event pages for each of the schools, departments, or groups listed below will be created.  Please return to this page periodically to see if a particular school, college, departmental, or other group ceremony has been linked.

If you need immediate information about a school, college or departmental ceremony, please contact them directly.
