Due to excessive heat in the forecast, this event has been moved to Kaplan Arena for graduates and all ticketed guests.

Students who register to attend this ceremony will have the opportunity to participate in the traditional Walk Across Campus (from the Wren Building, across the Crim Dell bridge, to the ceremony location). Once students process into the arena and are seated, we will have welcoming remarks from the President, recognize honorary degree and award recipients, and then confer degrees. Students will have their names read as they cross the stage by degree/program to receive their "stage diploma" (graduating students may pick up their actual diplomas at a location designated by their school/program during Commencement Weekend). Once degrees are conferred, students will recess out of the arena as graduates of William & Mary!
