Graduation Fair

Fall 2021 Graduation Fair

The Graduation Fair provides graduating students the opportunity to meet with a variety of offices on campus in one centralized location to make the graduation process more convenient. Students that will be graduating at the end of the term are encouraged to attend in order to be prepared for graduation and commencement.

The Graduation Fair is highly encouraged for students that plan to graduate but it is not required.

For Spring 2022, the Graduation Fair will be held Wednesday, March 2 from 9am to 4pm in the Maucker Union Ballrooms
