December 2023 COEHP Commencement
Commencement is an important recognition of a significant milestone in a student’s academic journey and allows the institution to realize its ultimate mission.
The 2023 commencement for the College of Education and Health Professions will be
12:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, at Bud Walton Arena. The ceremony also includes graduates of the Fay Jones School of Architecture and
and the Sam M. Walton College of Business. The university's other colleges participate in the morning ceremony. Either program is a single event for all undergraduate, graduate and law students who graduated the previous summer or who will graduate in the fall.
Basic information about all ceremonies is on the commencement general information page.
The Fall Commencement page of the Office of the Registrar offers details, including updates. Information there is both for graduates and their guests, such as parking and security details. Families should note early arrival is recommended as tickets are not required, seating is not reserved and all bags will be checked for security. All ceremonies will be streamed live on the UofA YouTube channel.
All students will need to have their own regalia to participate in Commencement. The Registrar's Office has cap-and-gown details such as a checklist on degree and departmental items, policies and related information.
