Midyear (Fall) Commencement: Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022

The midyear commencement ceremony, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 17, in Bauman Auditorium on our Newberg campus, will be broken into two ceremonies. Doors open to guests one hour prior to the start of the ceremony.

Students completing their degree from another graduate program are welcome to participate in midyear commencement. Please note: Not all graduate departments host midyear hooding ceremonies. Summer and fall graduates are welcome to delay their participation in commencement if they prefer to participate in their program-specific commencement and hooding held in the spring. Students need to communicate with their department and the registrar's office regarding their commencement attendance.

We anticipate each ceremony to last approximately one hour. Tickets will be required for all guests.

Additional guests are invited to watch the ceremony through the livestream and view the program online.
