Congratulations on graduating!

Please register for the College of the Arts Recognition Ceremony, which will take place following the university's ceremony. Both ceremonies take place on Saturday, May 4. The college ceremony is in the University of Florida Phillips Center at 2:00 PM, and will recognize all College of the Arts bachelor's, master’s and doctoral students. All master's students will be hooded by a faculty member at this ceremony.
