CU Boulder hosts one commencement ceremony in the spring to celebrate our graduates every year, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until spring to celebrate your graduation! Many colleges, schools, departments and programs hold individual recognition ceremonies in the winter. Start planning how you want to mark the occasion and make your graduation uniquely yours.

At these events, you may receive individual recognition as you cross the stage, get your diploma cover and have an opportunity to take pictures in your regalia. It’s a great way to connect with fellow Buffs from your college, school, department or program in a setting smaller than commencement.

Winter recognition ceremonies take place in December. A full list of event dates and details will be shared here when available.
