Celebrate With Pomp and Circumstance

This is it—the moment you’ve been working toward. Commencement is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication, and now it’s time to recognize all you’ve accomplished. We are excited to welcome you, your family and guests as we honor you and your achievements.

Make Your Graduation Extraordinary

CU Boulder hosts one commencement ceremony in the spring to celebrate our graduates every year. Whether you’re graduating in the fall, spring or summer semester, you're encouraged to participate in the commencement ceremony. Apply for graduation on the Buff Portal by April 1, selecting the term in which you expect to complete your degree requirements to have your name included in the commencement program. 

During the spring, we host additional celebrations to complement the commencement ceremony and help you commemorate the occasion with your different on-campus communities.
