About the Ceremonies

One Commencement, many ceremonies

Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis dedicates a full weekend to Commencement, with a main ceremony at Lucas Oil Stadium and separate school recognition events at the Indiana Convention Center.

There is only one main Commencement Day each year at the IUPUI campus, and it is in May. All students who complete degree requirements during the current academic year (December, May, June, August) are eligible to participate in May Commencement.

Tickets are not required for the main ceremony or for any of the school recognition events. We encourage you to attend both.
