Graduate degree recipients are recognized each May and December.  If you plan to attend the Graduate School’s commencement ceremony to celebrate the successful completion of your graduate degree, registration is required through the RSVP form at this link.


Spring semester ceremonies are held in May, and fall semester ceremonies are held in December.

MU does not hold a summer commencement ceremony. Students that are completing degrees during a summer semester should review the summer participation policies.  Doctoral degree candidates are required to successfully defend their dissertation and submit results of the successful defense to the Graduate School before participating in the Graduate School Commencement Ceremony.

Check the Mizzou commencement site for a schedule of upcoming ceremonies and events.


Tickets are not required for this event.  This event will adhere to recommended health guidelines as outlined in the Show-Me Renewal Plan.  Please visit the Show-Me Renewal website here for additional information.



The deadline to register for commencement is December 2nd.  Commencement participants must register to attend this event.
