Commencement 101

About this guide

At Towson University, Commencement is a formal academic ceremony that recognizes the scholarly achievements of baccalaureate, master's and doctoral candidates. We follow traditions that are thousands of years old, as well as those unique to Towson University. All commencement participants must strive to maintain a measure of decorum consonant with the occasion.

TU Commencement spans two days in December and three days in May (May 23-25, 2018).
