Commencement

Commencement is a special day to all of us here at Carroll University. We come to work every day eager to help you meet your academic and career goals. Watching you walk across the stage is a joyful day for the entire Carroll community. The Carroll faculty and staff are here to help and support you.

Recognizing each student individually there will be two graduation events. Friday, May 6 for Graduate Commencement and Saturday, May 7 for Undergraduate Commencement. Students can pick up rainsite tickets at Grad Fair to be used in case of inclement weather.

For guests who are unable to attend in person, a live stream link will be posted to this web page prior to the ceremony, and available On Demand following the ceremony.

As we continue to navigate the COVID pandemic, we are doing everything we can to ensure an in-person commencement for our students and their families. However, owing to local conditions, we may need to adjust plans in order to keep our community safe. Any and all changes will be communicated as appropriate

Baccalaureate: Blessing of the Graduates

Baccalaureate: Blessing of the Graduates is a time for graduating students to reflect on their years at Carroll University. This service of worship draws on Carroll’s religious heritage and on the diverse spiritual traditions of our graduating seniors. The service culminates with a special blessing of the Class of 2022, and graduates and their families from all religious traditions—or from none at all—are warmly invited to attend
