Celebrate with us at the 100th Commencement

Come to St. Louis, MO to celebrate your accomplishments! It’s our 100th Commencement!!

We’d love to meet you! If you graduated during any of five 2018-19 academic year terms, you are invited to participate in the St. Louis, MO Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at The Muny. The Muny is St. Louis’ outdoor amphitheater built in 1916, near where the 1904 World’s Fair was hosted.  Learn more about Commencement 2019 by clicking on Commencement Home, where you can also RSVP. Around a hundred online students usually make it to the St. Louis Commencement ceremony. We’d love to see you there, shake your hand, and celebrate together!

There will be a reception for graduating metro, military and online students Friday, May 10–Sunnen Lounge, in the University Center 4-6pm.  Join the alumni association, and meet other online students, staff, faculty, as well as the Gorlok! We will send out a RSVP to graduating as we get closer.

Not able to make the trip to St. Louis? No worries! Many extended campuses hold their own local graduation ceremonies throughout the year, so take a look at this list of scheduled graduations. If you are interested in walking in any of these ceremonies, please contact the campus directly.

**Don’t forget you need to submit your Petition to graduate!!
