When and where is the College of Fine Arts Graduation Convocation?

Visit the main Graduation Convocation page for location and dates of each Convocation. Students have received check-in information through their student email account.

How do I RSVP for Graduation Convocation? How many guests may come to see me?

Fall & Spring graduates received an email invitation with a link to an “exit survey”. Fall & Spring convocation ceremonies are ticketed, this survey serves as an RSVP and ticket request so that we meet student and guest accommodations. Tickets are limited to a specific number each year. Students may reserve tickets with their RSVP. Please see the bottom of this page for more information regarding tickets.

Where do I go to take the exit survey?

Exit Survey

Am I required to attend Fine Arts Graduation Convocation or UA Graduation?

Attending ceremonies for either The College of Fine Arts and/or The University of Arizona is at the discretion of the student. Fine Arts Graduation Convocation is an opportunity to be recognized individually, while The University of Arizona’s Graduation in the Arizona Stadium captures the spirit of your entire graduating class.

How do I RSVP for the general UA graduation ceremony?

UA general graduation ceremonies are held in Arizona Stadium. RSVP and scheduling information can be found at the UA Commencement site.

Am I required to wear regalia (cap and gown) to the ceremony? Where can I purchase regalia, tassels and other graduation items?

Regalia (Caps, gowns, tassels, and hoods) is required and are available at the U of A Bookstores, where you can also purchase diploma frames, gifts for grads, and custom-printed announcements. For more information, visit the Cap and Gown Information page.

I have earned several cords during university. Is it appropriate to wear cords from other UA colleges and associations?

You may wear all the cords you have received through The University of Arizona including cords from clubs, colleges or activities on campus who give out honors.

What if I earned cords for academic achievements in Fine Arts, but never attended Honors Convocation to receive them? Can I still pick them up?

No. Delayed cords must have already been coordinated in conjunction with Honors Convocation ceremonies.

Ticket Policy

Students may RSVP and reserve tickets. If additional tickets are available (there may be NO additional tickets) an announcement will be made. Students will be limited to 4 additional tickets and must come to the office to claim them. Additional 4 tickets are first come first serve.

*Please Note: Tickets are based on hall seats and number of students graduating.
