Event Information

FULL COMMENCEMENT INFORMATION    

BOISE STATE WILL HOST TWO SPRING COMMENCEMENT CEREMONIES TO ACCOMMODATE GROWING NUMBER OF GRADUATES AND THEIR FAMILIES

Due to the incredible interest from families and friends to support and celebrate graduation at Boise State, the university will hold two commencement celebrations inside Taco Bell Arena on May 5. Tickets will not be required.

 

·      The first celebration will be at 9:30 a.m. for graduates from Business and Economics, Engineering and Health Sciences.
 

 

·      The second celebration at 3:30 p.m. is for graduates from the College of Education, College of Arts and Sciences and School of Public Service.  

 

DOORS OPEN 1 HOUR PRIOR TO EACH CEREMONY. 

 

A reception for graduates and their guests will be held immediately following the ceremony in the Jordan Ball Room at the Student Union Building. Each college/school will have a designated area to meet family and friends. 

    A student speaker will be chosen for each ceremony and receptions will follow each ceremony in the Student Union Building.   Holding two ceremonies ensures that everyone who wants to attend the ceremony may do so. If family and friends can only make it to one of the two ceremonies, students may work with the registrar's office to participate in either ceremony, regardless of their home college.
For additional questions, please contact Mandy Nelson in the registrar's office at (208) 426-1294 or [email protected].

 

The ceremony will be a vibrant and intimate experience inside the arena, and the Student Union Building will house family friendly activities and viewing rooms so friends, families and supporters can all enjoy the most celebratory day on Boise State’s campus each year.

The return to the arena was prompted by the prospect of inclement weather negatively impacting the experience, postponing the event or even cancelling it outright. The celebration is too important to so many graduates and the Boise State community to risk a cancellation.

This will be the final commencement for President Bob Kustra and Provost Martin Schimpf, who are both stepping away from their roles this summer.

Graduates will receive email updates on the ceremony and other details as the event nears.

A reception for graduates and their guests will be held immediately following the ceremony in the Jordan Ball Room at the Student Union Building. Each college/school will have a designated area to meet family and friends.
