Summer Graduates

UALR has a spring commencement ceremony and a fall commencement ceremony. The spring commencement ceremonies are typically held in May, while the fall ceremonies usually take place in December. There is no commencement ceremony held during the summer term. If you are within 9 credit hours of completing a degree and are scheduled to complete those hours during the summer then you have the option to participate in either the spring or fall commencement ceremony.

We welcome you to either of the ceremonies. If you choose to walk in the spring ceremony then you will have a special note in the program stating that you will graduate in the summer. If you walk in the fall ceremony you will be listed as having graduated since you would have already completed your degree requirements.

Please remember that summer graduates must complete their graduation application by the spring application deadline to be included in the spring commencement program. Graduation application deadlines are listed in the academic calendar and are adhered to in order to comply with printing deadlines. Congratulations prospective graduates!
