SUBR Commencement Information


These resources are provided to help prepare degree candidates and their guests for the commencement ceremony, which is under the direction of the Office of Academic Affairs and the SUBR Commencement Committee.


The Spring 2017 Commencement procession of the SU graduation candidates is set to begin at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 12 and the ceremony will follow promptly at 9:30 a.m. Family and friends of graduating students are encouraged to arrive early.

Southern University is expecting over 700 students to graduate during the spring ceremony. In the event the F.G. Clark Activity Center should reach its capacity, there will be an overflow location for a live stream of the ceremony at the Smith-Brown Memorial Student Union. Shuttles will be provided to transport attendees to and from the F.G. Clark Activity Center.

Again, early arrival is suggested prior to 9 a.m. to allow time for parking and seating.
