Commencement 2018


Winter Ceremony

Commencement is a time of celebration and pageantry to mark the academic success of our students. We hope you will join us!

For the first time in many years, CCSU will be hosting a Winter Commencement. The ceremony will be held on Sunday, December 16 at 1 p.m. in Welte Auditorium (The snow date will be Tuesday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m.).

Undergraduate and graduate students who have met the requirements for their degrees as of August 2018, December 2018, and the Winter Intersession will be eligible to participate.

Please note, due to Welte Auditorium's seating capacity, this ceremony will be a ticketed event. Each candidate for graduation will receive four guest tickets if you register to attend by November 8, 2018. After that deadline, tickets may be limited to two per student. We realize this limitation will be troubling for some of you, so we offer you several options:

  • Additional guests assemble in the Student Center's Alumni Hall to watch a simulcast;
  • Guests watch a live internet feed; or
  • Postpone your participation in commencement until the spring ceremony on May 18, 2019 when guest seating is not limited.

Directly following the ceremony, a reception will be held for graduates and their guest in the Student Center’s Alumni Hall.
