Fall commencement plan follows last year’s
Iowa State will hold separate commencement ceremonies next month for undergraduate and graduate students. A Graduate College ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14; an undergraduate ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, both in Hilton Coliseum. In 2017 the university resumed holding two fall events after seven years of a consolidated celebration. The intent is to offer a meaningful but shorter event for graduating students and their families on the heels of record enrollment and retention rates. College convocations and receptions are spread over Friday and Saturday morning. Final exams will conclude Thursday evening, Dec. 13, with final grade submissions due by 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18.
