CU Denver Commencement

An Ending Celebrating a New Beginning

Commencement honors the achievement of one's academic goals and the beginning of the next vocational commitment. CU Denver ceremonies occur twice a year in December and May. Summer graduates are invited to participate in the fall ceremony. Participation in commencement is permitted only after a student has completed all of their degree requirements and has applied to graduate.

Tickets are not required for either commencement ceremony. Please note that seating is first-come, first-served.

For graduates that request their gowns be shipped to their homes, please be aware of possible shipping delays and plan accordingly. If your gown does not arrive before Commencement, extras will be available on-site, free of charge.
