  • Step one Apply for Graduation
  • The History Department holds a departmental commencement ceremony annually each spring. Due to the renovation of Hellems Arts & Sciences and the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theater, the ceremony has moved to the Muenzinger Psychology building. The ceremony lasts for approximately one hour and will be followed by a reception. 
  • Graduating students are asked to RSVP to the history department no later than March 8, 2024 with their name and the number of people coming to the ceremony, including themselves. Due to the limited seating capacity of the venue, please try to restrict the maximum number of guests you bring to 5, for a total of 6 people including yourself. If you would like to bring additional guests, please contact us after the RSVP deadline and we will try to accommodate your request. See the History Commencement Information/Instructions.

  • UPDATE! If you did not RSVP by the March 8, 2024 deadline and would still like to attend, please email history@colorado.edu to determine if seats are available.

  • The Muenzinger Psychology building is ADA accessible from the stadium plaza entrance east of Muenzinger (through the Gold building archway).
