This new format will better accommodate students’ families and eliminate issues surrounding “standing room only” on the main floor of our venue, in addition to a full balcony and overflow area. It also allows students to invite more than four family members—an important consideration for those who are first in their families to graduate.

Students will process and receive their degrees during only one ceremony, but they are free to attend both services. On Friday, May 11, traditional students will gather on the steps of the library for a class picture. They will participate in the ivy cutting ceremony and baccalaureate service as usual.

Commencement is an exciting time on every college campus. At Greenville, it acknowledges our students' academic achievements and reaffirms the continuing vitality of the campus. The granting of baccalaureate and graduate degrees is celebrated through long-standing traditions, as well as reflections on the opportunities ahead.

This website provides important details and information regarding graduation and the activities scheduled for Commencement Weekend, May 11-12, 2018.

To each of our graduates, we are eager for you to participate in Commencement exercises as a way of sharing this great accomplishment with your fellow students, as well as with the families who have supported you on your journey to one of life's most significant milestones.
