Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 1:00 p.m.
George R. Newman Center

 The Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony and Conferring of Degrees will begin at 1:00 p.m.  Guests should be seated in advance of the procession.

Ticket-bearing guests are invited to attend the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony in the Newman Center. Each graduate participating in the undergraduate ceremony will receive four tickets for guests (the graduate does not need a ticket). Graduates must pick up tickets at Salute to Grads on April 16, 2019. These tickets cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. Tickets must be presented for admission on Commencement Day.

Guest seating in the Newman Center is designated as the floor seats and bleacher seats that are not reserved for the graduates, faculty, and other denoted special guests. All guests, including children, must have a ticket to enter. Doors open at approximately 12:15 p.m.; guests should be seated by 12:45 p.m. for the Academic Procession, and plan to remain for the entire ceremony. Caldwell University recognizes the accomplishments of all of our graduates and will announce the name of each ceremony participant, therefore, it is expected that guests will remain for the entire ceremony as a courtesy to our graduates and their guests.

For guests of graduates without tickets, there are three locations for simulcast viewing of the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony on May 19, 2019: The Alumni Theater, the Student Center Dining Hall and Cougar Den areas. Tickets are not needed for entry to these spaces which operate on a first-come first-served basis, with limited seating.

Please be aware the Graduate Commencement Ceremony is held on the morning of May 19, 2019; if you arrive early, please be considerate to others celebrating their accomplishments.
