Find Your Ceremony

Commencement Day at Case Western Reserve University includes the university-wide convocation, followed by eight separate diploma ceremonies.

Diplomas are presented at the ceremonies hosted by each school.

All students receiving a bachelor's degree, regardless of major or school, receive their diploma at the undergraduate studies diploma ceremony.

To identify degrees awarded at each diploma ceremony, see the complete list below.

Diploma ceremonies typically run between 90 and 120 minutes each, depending on the size of the school. Receptions are held to honor new graduates, and precede or follow each diploma ceremony. Receptions generally last about two hours. Receptions are optional but encouraged for graduates and their guests.   

Undergraduate Studies Diploma Ceremony includes all bachelor’s degree programs offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, Case School of Engineering, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, and Weatherhead School of Management.
