View Commencement Live

 

Attention Spring and Summer 2022 Graduates: Students must submit their Graduation Application in MyCentral by February 15 in order to receive an invitation to the May 6-8 spring/summer commencement ceremonies. 

Student who graduated in prior semesters (Spring, Summer, or Fall 2021 only) and who wish to "walk late" in the May ceremonies must submit the Late Walk Application by February 15th in order to receive an invitiation to the May 6-8 spring/summer commencement ceremonies.

Invitations will be emailed to spring/summer degree candidates during the week of February 22nd and will be due back by March 15th. Ceremonies will be limited and RSVPs will be honored as first come, first served.

All 2022 Spring and Summer degree candidates are cordially invited to participate in Spring Commencement ceremonies being held Friday, May 6, 2021 and Saturday, May 7, 2021 in the Multipurpose Building.  (Sunday, May 8th will be used as an overflow day if needed due to COVID protocols.)  UCM does not have a Summer commencement ceremony - all summer degree candidates are invited to walk in the May ceremonies. Please note that students earning certificates independent of degrees are not recognized at commencement ceremonies.

If you have specific questions or just need more information, visit the Office of the Registrar in Ward Edwards 1000, call 660-543-4900 or email graduation@ucmo.edu.

Graduation candidates need to check their UCM Email accounts often. Important graduation information is sent to degree candidates throughout the semester. 

For undergraduate degree candidates, your academic college determines which ceremony you are to attend.  If you are unsure which college your major/program is housed in, you can find a list here. * Please note, not all BSE 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. 

Days/Times have not be finalized for 2022 at this time. Please check back next semester!
