Planning to Participate in Graduation Ceremonies?

USU Commencement

This ceremony occurs the first Saturday morning in May and invites all USU Undergraduate students to participate. Students should assemble on the University Quad (Just east of Old Main), will be grouped with their colleges, and walk/process to the Dee Glenn Spectrum. Speakers are chosen by Utah State University and will be speaking to USU graduates as a whole.

Guest tickets are not required for the Commencement Ceremony in the Spectrum. Please visit for more information.

College of Engineering Convocation

Wayne Estes Center
898 Lars Hansen Drive (800 East), Logan, UT
May 5th 12:30 PM

This ceremony will occur on the same day as USU Commencement but is typically later in the day and involves only Undergraduate students in the College of Engineering. Therefore, the speakers will be directing their addresses specifically to you as engineers and you will walk across the stage with your fellow engineering students.

There will be limited seating and may require tickets for guests. If you are unable to acquire tickets for all of your guests overflow seating will be available. Make sure to read your emails and check back for ticketing updates.

Immediately following the ceremony, there will be ice cream provided for graduates and guests.

*Please note that “walking” in either ceremony does not guarantee degree completion, and is optional. As long as degree requirements are met, your diploma will be mailed to the address on your application for graduation 6-8 weeks after graduation.
