Boise State Will Host Two Spring Commencement Ceremonies to Accommodate Growing Number of Graduates and Their Families

By: Sherry Squires   Published 9:00 am / February 23, 2018

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.

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
