Departmental Celebrations

UNCW's commencement ceremonies provide eligible students campus-wide the opportunity to "walk across the stage" in Trask Coliseum and degrees are conferred. Additionally, individual departments and offices celebrate graduates through departmental celebrations and events that are hosted in conjunction with Commencement weekend.

Departmental celebrations will take place from May 11-13. The Departmental Celebration schedule will be released by April 1.
