English and Creative Writing Convocation

5 p.m. Saturday, May 11, 2019
Smith Memorial Hall
805 S. Mathews Ave., Urbana

Students graduating with degrees in English or creative writing are invited to participate in a special convocation ceremony hosted by the Department of English.

This ceremony is only for students who earned degrees in August or December 2018 and did not participate in the LAS Winter Convocation, or who are on the May 2019 pending degree list. BA, MA, and MFA candidates who are planning for an August 2019 degree are invited to participate provided they are within 13 hours of completion; PhD students must be on the May degree list in order to participate in the ceremony and be hooded, unless special permission has been granted.

Degree candidates will be sent more detailed information in March regarding registration and participation.

Registration will open March 11 and close April 10. After that date, you can indicate your desire to participate by emailing us. Please be aware that if you contact us after the registration period has closed, we cannot guarantee the availability of tickets or that your name will appear in the program.
