Commencement is one of our most cherished traditions, one that marks a major milestone for you, your family and the faculty and staff who have supported your journey at Charlotte. The ceremonies will take place in the Dale F. Halton Arena located in the Barnhardt Student Activity Center. The December 2024 commencement schedule will be posted the first week of October.

Please view the live-stream for the May 2024 ceremonies.

Please be advised that only graduating students and commencement personnel are permitted in the commencement assembly and seating areas and may participate in the commencement procession and ceremony. If a personal assistant is required as a disability accommodation, please contact the Office of Disability Services.

Please review the clear bag policy. Backpacks, umbrellas and balloons are not permitted.

Graduating students are required to have a UNC Charlotte student ID card or mobile ID in order to enter the graduate area. If you do not have a valid UNC Charlotte ID card, please follow the instructions on how to download a mobile ID.
