Commencement 2019 is on Sunday, June 2. Families are encouraged to book their accommodations early, since nearby hotels fill up fast.* Bookmark this page for the latest information, as events are subject to change.

In early January, potential graduates will receive information about Commencement planning—including how to order their cap & gown, where they need to check in before finalizing graduation plans, and who to contact for questions. Be sure to read those materials thoroughly and follow the instructions.

  • Campus Parking Map (Parking is available in all campus lots and in the Knox County Courthouse lot at the corner of Cherry & South Streets.)
  • Commencement Weekend Schedule and Senior Week activities
