KU Commencement 2016

At this most significant and joyous ceremony of the academic year, we recognize those who have completed undergraduate and graduate degrees and those whose achievements are worthy of honorary degrees. The event is steeped in centuries-old traditions and brightened by the exuberant joy of the new graduates as their procession moves through the Memorial Campanile, down “the Hill,” and into Memorial Stadium.

The University’s comprehensive guide to commencement includes information about regalia, the procession, recognition events, and parking and seating for guests, among other details.

Note: No registration needed for the Commencement ceremony on Sunday, but recognition events for schools and departments may require tickets.
