December 2020 Commencement with social distancing

May 2022 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. As with almost everything else these last two years, the spring 2022 commencement ceremonies will be conducted to keep everyone as safe as possible.

The University of Arkansas again will hold several programs to assure adequate seating. The ceremony for graduating undergraduates of the College of Education and Health Professions will be 5 p.m. Saturday, May 14, at Bud Walton Arena on the Fayetteville campus. COEHP graduate-degree earners will be honored at the all-campus rites at 8:30 a.m. May 14 at Bud Walton.

The Spring Commencement page of the Office of the Registrar offers complete details including updates and general information — both for the graduates and their guests — including parking and security details. Students must apply to graduate by March 1 to be included in the commencement program. Families should note that doors will open 60 minutes prior to each ceremony and they are encouraged to be seated 15 minutes prior to the ceremony’s start.


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.
