Graduation Ceremony Information

Please refer to the VCU Commencement website for graduation ceremony information.

VCU has a Commencement ceremony at the conclusion of the Fall and Spring semesters in which all students graduating from the University are invited to participate.

Additionally, each department will have a diploma ceremony where all graduating students in the department are encouraged to participate. The departmental ceremony is where students have their name called and walk across the stage with a photographer present.  This exciting event is a celebration of years of hard work and sacrifice of many people so family and friends are encouraged to attend.

The VCU Commencement website has all the information about both ceremonies including regalia (cap and gown), time and location of each ceremony, ticket information, and much more.

*Graduation exercises/ceremonies are completely voluntary. Graduating students may attend the VCU Commencement ceremony and the KHS departmental diploma ceremony OR just one OR neither if they wish.
