Graduation Information

Graduation from Elizabethtown College is celebrated once each year in May. Students who completed ALL graduation requirements in the previous Summer (August degree conferral) or Fall (January degree conferral) or current Spring (May degree conferral) semesters are recognized at this ceremony.

Commencement tickets are available at the Graduation Fair

  • Watch for Campus News Announcements for Specific Dates and Times
  • Where: The KAV

For students unable to attend the fair, graduation tickets will be available for pick-up in Registration and Records in April.  A student MUST present their ID to pick up the tickets.  Each graduate is entitled to 3 tickets, no exceptions.  The tickets are only necessary if the ceremony is held indoors due to inclement weather.

Students enrolled in our School of Continuing and Professional Studies at the Edward R. Murphy Center for Continuing Education programs should consult with the main office for more information about early participation and graduation.

All Academic Policies relating to Graduation are located in the College Catalog

  • Residency

Seniors who are not actually graduating may petition to indicate their desire to participate in Commencement and for verification of their status as a "member of the class."  Please refer to the online Catalog for a full explanation of the Early Participation policy. Early Participation Applications (in JayWeb) for traditional day students are due in the Office of Registration and Records on or before February 1st every spring.
