Graduation ceremonies are held at the end of each semester. At the end of fall and spring semesters, three ceremonies are held- one for each college – Arts and Sciences, Business and Education. Each ceremony is held in the Athens State University Carter Physical Education Center Gymnasium. Tickets are not required for guest attendance.
At the end of the summer semester, one ceremony is held on the lawn of Founders Hall, weather permitting.
Detailed ceremony information will be emailed to all students who applied for graduation approximately 1 month before the ceremony.
Diplomas will be mailed to all graduates 4 to 6 weeks after the ceremony. A student’s major or minor does not appear on the diploma, but is listed on the student’s academic transcript.
