Commencement ceremony of 2018


Given the state of public health, UHD plans to hold Fall 2020 Commencement virtually on Saturday, December 19 to ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff, and guests. This event will celebrate the academic a​chi​evements of UHD graduates who completed their degree in Spring or Summer 2020 and graduation candidates who have applied for graduation for Fall 2020.

This will be a memorable virtual ceremony that students, family members, and guests can participate in and be proud of. We may be at a distance from each other, but we will come together through technology this December for an event that will allow us all to recognize our graduates' outstanding accomplishments.

Virtual Ceremony Details:

  • UHD has partnered with a third-party company, Full Measure, to help host and deliver our virtual Commencement Ceremony. Students will be contacted and will interact with a web app hosted by Full Measure.

  • This will be a fully streamed event available via mobile, desktop, or smart TV, providing students and their guests multiple options for viewing.

  • Each student will have the opportunity to hear their name called. Students will also see their picture (optional), along with their degree title, preliminary Latin honors distinctions, and a thank you message or quote, all of which will appear on what Full Measure calls a “Student Recognition Slide."

  • All content from the ceremony will be available for viewing after the event. The ceremony will be broadcast "live" on Social Media (UHD's official YouTube or Facebook Live with closed captioning).​

Participants: Spring 2020 & Summer 2020 Graduates and Fall 2020 Graduation Candidates (Current students who have applied for graduation for Fall 2020).

Audience: Graduates, family, and friends.

Date: Saturday, December 19
