May 2015 Commencement Weekend consists of two parts: the all-University Conferral of Degrees ceremony and each college's signature Convocation cereomony.  

Chancellor John Christensen will officially confer degrees to candidates from all colleges at the Conferral of Degrees ceremony at 6:00 pm on Friday, May 8th.  The evening concludes with a campus-wide reception.

Each College will have a signature Convocation ceremony and celebratory reception on Friday, May 8th or Saturday, May 9th.  Check the Schedule at a Glance for your College's date and time.

Graduating students are expected to attend both events.  Faculty will be present at each ceremony to help acknowledge the academic achievements of our new alumni.


We look forward to celebrating Commencement Weekend with our students, their guests, and the UNO community.
