Commencement

Ceremony Schedule

Spring 2023 Commencement will be held at the Yuengling Center basketball arena on the Tampa campus on Friday, May 5 - Sunday, May 7 for students from all three USF campuses. The ceremony schedule will be determined after the deadline for students to apply for their degree, February, 6, passes. In order for graduates' names to be printed in the commencement brochure, students will need to meet the application deadline. 

REGISTRATION

Registration for students will open at the end of February and will close on May 1, providing students ample time to register to attend. You will be notified via email when registration is available. If you need proof of eligibility to attend Commencement for visa purposes to allow your overseas guests to attend, please contact us and we will assist you. Please note that attending USF Commencement is not required and students receive diplomas in the mail approximately six to eight weeks after the end of the semester regardless of whether or not they attend a ceremony. 

GUEST REGISTRATION AND TICKETS

There are no tickets required for guests to attend Commencement and no limit on how many guests each graduate may bring. Ceremonies are livestreamed via the USF YouTube channel for those guests who are unable to attend
