Pomp and Circumstance

It's the big day. A feeling unlike any other, and here in the Commencement Office we share your excitement. Our office has been celebrating graduation ceremonies and convocations since 1912. In the weeks leading up to graduation, look for important communication messages arriving from us to you via your UofM email.  The most important one is Step 4. Step 4 is required by all students. Check 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.
