Fall Commencement Schedule

 

All 2021 Fall degree candidates are invited to participate in Fall Commencement ceremonies being held in the Multipurpose Building on Friday, December 10th and Saturday, December 11th. Please note that students earning certificates independent of degrees are not recognized at commencement ceremonies. 

This web site contains extensive information about commencement, including a schedule of activities. If you have specific questions or need more information email graduation@ucmo.edu.

 

CEREMONY INFORMATION

  • Questions about graduation and commencement may be sent to the Registrar's Office at graduation@ucmo.edu, please include your full name and student number.  
  • Graduation candidates must check their UCM Email accounts often. Important graduation information is sent to degree candidates throughout the semester. 
  • Your level (undergraduate or graduate), academic college, and/or academic program determines which ceremony you are to attend. If you are unsure which college or school your major/program belongs to, you can find a listing here. * Please note, not all teaching programs are in the College of Education.
  • Students pursuing an Individualized Major (not General Studies) should attend the ceremony with the college associated with their Individualized Major.

To make the commencement ceremonies as safe as possible: 

  • Masks may be required to enter the arena and must be worn during the entire ceremony by all in attendance.  Students and guests will be expected to bring their own masks.  The mask requirement will be re-evaluated as the ceremony dates approach.
  • All ceremonies will be live-streamed so that additional guests can watch from the safety of their homes.
