Knox College Commencement is right around the corner, and exciting events are in store to celebrate our graduates. Commencement 2022 is on Sunday, June 5. Families are encouraged to book their accommodations now, since nearby hotels fill up fast. Bookmark this page for the latest information, as events are subject to change.

Potential graduates have received information via email about Commencement planning—including acquiring their cap & gown, where they need to check-in before finalizing graduation plans, and whom to contact for questions. Be sure to read those materials thoroughly and follow the instructions.

COVID-19 Guidelines

We currently do not plan to require tickets or limit the number of guests. Graduates and guests must abide by the College’s COVID-19 guidelines which are available on the Knox Together website. These guidelines are subject to change, so please check back frequently.


Parking is available in all campus lots and in the Knox County Courthouse lot at the corner of Cherry & South Streets. The Cherry Street parking lot is reserved for accessible parking. There will be golf carts at this location to assist guests in getting from their cars to the ceremony venue.

The turnaround at Alumni Hall is reserved for emergency access.

Commencement Sustainability

The Class of 2022 and their guests will likely notice the many ways Knox honors its commitment to sustainability throughout Commencement weekend. The following are just a couple of the sustainable features of Knox’s Commencement.

  • All the caps and gowns are made from 100% recycled polyethylene. For every one of these gowns manufactured, the equivalent of 29 plastic bottles are recovered.
  • Many of the 2022 graduates will wear green ribbons among their Commencement regalia. This signifies that they signed the Graduation Pledge for Social and Environmental Responsibility.
