Wingate Commencement

The campus celebrates the accomplishments of its graduating students each spring and fall. If you’re graduating, we invite you, your family and friends to take part in this milestone celebration.


In the interest of everyone's health and safety, the University has canceled plans both for a spring make-up commencement, which was set for October, and for our traditional December fall commencement. We are eager to celebrate everyone's accomplishments and look forward to a time when we can safely host a ceremony. Right now, the next targeted day for Commencement will be May 2021.

When ceremonies are rescheduled, the following resources have additional information you may find useful:

General Parking

Visitors may park in any campus lot for the event. There is no cost to park when you’re attending Commencement. You can expect to be directed by Campus Safety staff to an available lot. Arrive early to get a better parking space.

Special Needs Parking

We are especially attentive to our guests who require a little extra help when traveling to Commencement. You or your guest must be attending Commencement and have a handicap parking permit to use handicapped parking for Commencement.
