College Graduation Ceremonies

About

As part of Commencement activities, the University of New England will recognize the accomplishments of its graduates at individual College Graduation Ceremonies to be held on Friday, May 20, and Saturday, May 21.

While the six college ceremonies will vary, each will honor the academic achievements of the Class of 2022 and will feature the presentation of awards and other distinctions to the graduating class. At the ceremonies, students will have the opportunity to individually cross the stage to receive recognition and congratulations from the college dean, obtain their diploma holder, and have pictures taken.

Graduate ceremonies will bestow special recognition for master's and doctoral degree students by showcasing the placement of the hoods on the graduates, signifying their success in completing the graduate program. For many participants, the ceremony symbolizes the culmination of graduate studies and the degree recipient’s transition from student to colleague.

Each College Graduation Ceremony is similar to the University Commencement Ceremony in that there is a processional and recessional and graduates/faculty are dressed in academic regalia. While the college ceremonies are significant, they do not replace the University Commencement Ceremony. The University Commencement Ceremony, to be held on Saturday, May 21, will include all undergraduate and graduate students with full pomp and circumstance and will officially confer the degrees of the Class of 2022.
