What is the difference between VCU’s universitywide ceremony and VCU’s departmental ceremonies?
Graduates have the opportunity to celebrate their achievement at two ceremonies: the universitywide ceremony and their school or department’s ceremony. At departmental ceremonies, graduates will be recognized individually and typically will walk across the stage. You will receive information concerning your individual ceremony from your school or department office. Visit here for a complete listing of departmental ceremonies.
Departmental ceremonies are separate from the universitywide ceremony, held on Saturday, May 13 at 10 a.m. at the Richmond Coliseum, 601 E. Leigh St. At the universitywide ceremony, graduates are recognized collectively by school, with the exception of Ph.D. and Ed.D. candidates, who will be recognized individually.
What time should I arrive at the Richmond Coliseum?
Faculty, please plan to arrive in your regalia by 9 a.m.
What are my parking options getting to the event?

Where do I go once I arrive at the Richmond Coliseum?
