Celebrating beginnings

Commencement is an exciting time at Indiana University when we recognize and celebrate the academic achievements of students as they begin their lives beyond the university. Your Commencement ceremony will be a memorable day for you, your family, and your friends.

The Commencement ceremony is based on longstanding traditions within academia. Each Indiana University campus holds its own ceremony, and details and dates are different for each.

Visit the Commencement website for your campus for complete, up-to-the-minute information
