This summer, BGSU will host commencement exercises outdoors on the Bowen-Thompson Quadrangle, located west of University Hall, on the Bowling Green campus. Each graduate will have the opportunity to cross the commencement stage and receive a diploma cover. No guest tickets are required for the outdoor ceremony.

In early June, the online RSVP form will be sent to each degree candidate's BGSU email. The RSVP form must be completed in order to attend the ceremony. Learn more about summer commencement by visiting the Ceremony Information page.
