Pomp and Circumstance

It's the big day. A feeling unlike any other, and here in the the Commencement Office we share your excitement. Our office has been celebrating graduation ceremonies and convocations since 1912. In the months leading up to graduation, look for important communication messages arriving from us to you via your UofM email. We recommend checking your email regularly so you do not miss a single step in the Four-Steps to Graduation process. If you are eager to learn more Commencement details, click through our website. If you have a question or concern you want to share in person, we are located in 101 Brister Hall.

Security at the FedExForum
Walk-through magnetometers were installed at FedExForum under the premise of being used at all Memphis Grizzlies games, as per an NBA mandate conceptualized this summer during league security meetings. The magnetometers have become an industry standard across MLB, NHL and NFL venues and their use will now be mandatory for every FedExForum event in order to improve fan safety and guest experience, a shared goal between FedExForum, the University of Memphis and touring production companies.

To ensure your Commencement ceremony is enjoyable for you and your guests, please note the following:
• Guests are advised to bring ONLY necessary items to the FedExForum during events, concerts and games.
• Separate express lanes will be available for guests in the Grand Lobby without bags to be inspected.
• Guests will not need to remove their hats, shoes, belts, watches or jewelry as with airport security. Instead, guests will have to      
 place their cell phones, cameras and keys on a security table prior to walking through the metal detector.
• Expectant mothers, those with pacemakers and ADA guests are not subject to the magnetometers and will instead be screened through handheld devices.


Due to the NBA Grizzlies NBA 2nd Round playoff schedule, each of the University of Memphis spring (May) Commencement events are subject to change. Visit our News section for more details.
