Graduate Convocation Ceremony

Date: Thursday, December 15, 2016
Time: 6 p.m.
Location: UH Basketball Facility
Deadline to file: September 30, 2016

Convocation is the graduation ceremony where students will be individually recognized for their academic achievement. The UH Bauer College of Business has two convocation ceremonies for graduating bachelor's, master's and doctoral students:

  • one at the end of the fall semester
  • one at the end of the spring semester

Students graduating in the summer may participate in the spring ceremony prior to their actual graduation, or the fall ceremony following their summer completion. The convocation ceremony will last approximately two and a half hours.

Whether or not a student participates in the convocation ceremony, actual graduation is contingent upon successful completion of all graduate coursework and other degree requirements by the end of the semester for which the student has filed.
