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

We asked The University of Arizona School of Dance alumna Erina Ueda (BFA ‘21, Dance) ...

What have you been up to?

I’m currently a professional dancer with the Giordano Dance Chicago, America’s original jazz dance company in Chicago, Illinois. It has been a magical experience so far being a part of their legacy, representing as their first Asian dancer, performing at Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Harris Theater and the Auditorium Theatre, and touring around the state & country. This spring, I was invited to be interviewed by the Consultant General of Japan in Chicago.

Not only I work as a professional dancer, but I work as a social media consultant and a videographer for the GDC. I also teach dance classes: ballet, jazz, tap and acrobat, at many different studios in the city, as well as being invited to teach at summer intensives and master classes from other states.

It has been a whole new world, a dream come true, and I cannot wait to continue learning and growing, become stronger, and perform with the incredible Giordano Dance Chicago, who I call my family, as we enter our 60th season!

It is such an honor to be recognized by you. Thank you so much for reaching out; I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the experience I had at UofA ❤️💙

Here's Assistant Professor of Practice Darnell T. Roulhac in his "The Room Where it Happens: Guide to Auditioning Successfully" workshop at the International Thespian Festival 2022!

"The Room Where it Happens" is a masterclass-style workshop to better prepare young singers as they are auditioning for schools and shows. Participants get tips on how to pick impactful songs as well as how to get the attention of the panel one's performing for. They will also discuss 32-bar cuts and what else one should have prepared.

Hosted at Indiana University, the festival is a celebration of school theatre and gathers thespians from around the globe for performances, workshops, and college auditions!
