spring 2017 schedule building

As a reminder, spring 2018 working reports are available in Cognos for departments to review. Working reports do not need to be returned for this round, but all editing must be completed in Banner by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 26.

Summer commencement

Planning for the June 24 commencement is underway. Two ceremonies will be held in Miller Auditorium as follows:

9 a.m.   College of Aviation
College of Education and Human Development
College of Engineering and Applied Sciences
College of Health and Human Services
12:30 p.m.   College of Arts and Sciences
College of Fine Arts
Extended University Programs
Haworth College of Business

Graduates must reserve their tickets by June 14. Graduates who reserved their tickets before June 14 may request up to two additional tickets from June 19 through June 21. Additional tickets will be available while quantities last on a first come, first served basis.

New electronic commencement tickets

Graduates now have a more convenient way to request and receive their commencement tickets.  Starting with June Commencement, we are moving to an electronic ticketing system.

Students will no longer need to go to the Bookstore to pick up their commencement tickets or wait in line at Miller for extra tickets.   Eligible graduates will be able to order tickets online using their Bronco Net ID and password.  After completing the ticket reservation process, students will be able to print a PDF ticket or send the ticket electronically to their guest.

Electronic tickets are generated with a unique identifier that is traceable back to the student who requested them.  Tickets can be printed multiple times; however, they can only be scanned once at Miller.  Duplicate tickets with the same bar code will be denied entrance after the first ticket has been scanned.
