Welcome to the 143rd Commencement at the University of Kansas. At this most significant and joyous ceremony of the academic year, we recognize those who have completed undergraduate and graduate degrees and those whose achievements are worthy of honorary degrees. The event is steeped in centuries-old traditions and brightened by the exuberant joy of the new graduates as their procession moves through the Memorial Campanile, down “the Hill,” and into Memorial Stadium.

This comprehensive guide includes information about regalia, the procession, recognition events, and parking and seating for guests, among other details.

Note: No registration needed for the Commencement ceremony, but recognition events for schools and departments may require tickets.
