2023 Commencement: Tuesday, June 20, 2023

The University of Oregon is pleased to announce this year’s spring commencement exercises will be held on Tuesday, June 20, 2023. Because our typical commencement day (the Monday after spring term finals) falls on the Juneteenth holiday, the University Commencement Ceremony at Autzen Stadium and all school and college ceremonies will be held on June 20.

The university will release additional details regarding the times and locations of school and college ceremonies and other activities, regalia, parking, the Grad Parade, and more on the commencement website in the weeks to come. Eligible students will receive additional information via their @uoregon email in early spring term.

Our graduates join a long legacy and large community of alumni around the world, and we look forward to celebrating the Class of 2023!

More information will be provided as event details are finalized.
