Commencement Updates for May 2018

May Commencement is less than four months away! You likely have many questions as you prepare to celebrate your student's big day(s). There will be multiple ceremonies and other events throughout Commencement Weekend, which is May 19-20, 2018. The main University Commencement ceremony is held on Saturday, May 19, at 1:30pm in Yager Stadium. Each of our academic divisions (colleges) also holds a ceremony on that weekend. No tickets are required for any of these ceremonies.

Various dining options will be available at the Armstrong Center and Garden Commons. Some catered meal options may require advance reservations and a deposit. Overnight accommodations are available in residence halls for Saturday night, May 19 ONLY (reservation required). Information about all of these topics, and more, is available on the Commencement website, which will continue to be updated throughout the spring. We are also excited to offer a webinar for parents focused specifically on Preparing for May Graduation on February 22. 

Listings of additional overnight accommodation options in Oxford and surrounding areas can be found on the Visiting Miami page.

Students should also be planning to complete their application for graduation by March 2. 

Congratulations to you and your soon-to-be-Miami alum!
