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 Spring 2024 commencement ceremonies will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11. After the graduation application deadline of February 8, 2024, the commencement committee will organize the ceremonies by colleges and/or Graduate School. The data collected from the applications will provide the number of students eligible to participate from each college which will determine the ceremony schedule and the number of tickets each student may reserve.

All graduating students will receive information through their UNC Charlotte email account. The commencement website will also be updated with cap/gown, ticket and ceremony information.

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.
