Commencement is a formal celebration honoring the achievements of graduates and candidates for graduation. The annual ceremony is held after the spring semester. Participation is voluntary and does not mean a degree has been awarded.

The 2018 Commencement Ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the Tinley Park Convention Center and Hotel, 18451 Convention Center Drive, Tinley Park, Illinois. More information to come!

The Commencement Ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Business will begin at 10:00 am. 

The Commencement Ceremony for the College of Education and the College of Health and Human Services will begin at 4:30 pm.

Each graduate will receive six tickets. Tickets will be available online beginning Monday, April 23, 2018 and closing on Friday, May 4, 2018.

We want to extend our congratulations and best wishes to our GSU graduates and their families!
