Dear faculty, staff, and students,

As you know, this year’s commencement will take place on Saturday, May 5th in the form of two ceremonies at the Wintrust Arena, located at 200 East Cermak, in Chicago. These two ceremonies will be shorter than the single ceremony in past years, and will offer faculty and staff more opportunity to engage with students.

·         The morning ceremony will begin at 9:30 am and will celebrate students from Harold Washington College, Truman College, Olive-Harvey College, and Kennedy-King College.

·         The afternoon ceremony will begin at 2:30 pm and will celebrate students from Malcolm X College, Daley College, and Wright College.

Students expecting to graduate and participate in the Commencement Ceremony should visit to learn more about what they should do to prepare for the day, including ordering a cap and gown.

We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of this year’s graduates and hope to see you there. In the meantime, join in the countdown to graduation on FacebookTwitterInstagram.
