In Case of Severe Weather

In the case of severe and/or dangerous weather, the University may choose to move the ceremony indoors to the Field House located within the RecPlex. Since space within this facility will be limited, Commencement will need to be split into two ceremonies as follows:

  • 9:30 a.m. – College of Arts & Sciences and Egan School of Nursing & Health Studies
  • 1:30 p.m. - Dolan School of Business and School of Engineering
