Family & Friends

CCSU will host a winter commencement ceremony on Sunday, December 16 at 1 p.m. in Welte Auditorium on the CCSU campus in New Britain (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 graduate will receive four guest tickets if they register by November 8, 2018. There are other options to view our ceremony. Guests are invited to the Student Center's Alumni Hall where they can watch a simulcast and then await their graduates arrival for the reception which will also be held in Alumni Hall.

A live internet feed will also be made available.

Free parking will be available. Those garages and surface lots closest to Welte include: Welte Garage, Student Center Parking Lot, and the Student Center Garage.
