Commencement Ceremony: May 12 and 13, 2017

Due to inclement weather conditions, the decision has been made to move the undergraduate commencement ceremony indoors.

Undergraduate commencement will be held in Heiges Field House in two separate ceremonies based on colleges.

Graduates of the John L. Grove College of Business and the College of Education and Human Services will participate at 11 a.m. Graduates of the College of Arts and Sciences will participate at 3 p.m.

Tickets are required for both indoor ceremonies. Each graduate is allotted seven tickets. Due to high demand, no extra tickets are available.

General information about commencement can be found at www.ship.edu/Events/Graduation/UG-Commencement-Instructions/.

The ceremony will be broadcast at the Ceddia Union Building in Orndorff Theatre and via the local Comcast Cable system on channel 21.
