University of Connecticut Commencement & Convocation


Commencement at the University of Connecticut is a time of ceremony and pageantry, a time for marking academic achievements, and a time to begin the next step in life. Family and friends gather to witness the formal end to a student's college years; faculty, staff and trustees join in the tradition of conferring degrees; and students participate in an annual rite that marks their individual accomplishments.

The University holds Commencement ceremonies in May.


The Fall Convocation is the formal academic event that marks the opening of each new academic year.
