Congratulations future Alliant graduates! The completion of your degree is not only a milestone worth celebrating, it marks the beginning of your career of impact as an Alliant Alum. This is an invitation for you to highlight your accomplishments by participating in the 2024 Spring Commencement ceremony. Commencement recognizes and celebrates students’ successful completion of their academic programs. Many students, as well as their family and friends, participate in the ceremony as a rite of passage that commemorates the achievement of a higher education degree. 

If you are projected to be enrolled in your final required course or courses in the May 2024 term (Term 6: May 1st-June 21, 2024), then you are eligible to participate in the May 2024 Commencement ceremony.

Attend an in-person Commencement ceremony:

  • If you plan on attending a in person commencement ceremony, please submit the 2023 Spring Commencement Participation form by January 15, 2024. 
  • You have the option to attend an in-person commencement ceremony location of your choice, preferably one closest to where you reside.

 Due to the high volume of anticipated graduates, it’s imperative all students submit the participation form by January 15, 2024. Please note, due to occupancy limits and based on the number of participants, the number of guests per student may be limited and will be strictly enforced.
