2017 Commencement

Dear Degree Candidates:

Congratulations on a lifetime milestone—completing your undergraduate degree. USCB's 2017 Commencement is a special occasion in your life and a cause for celebration with your family and friends. It is also a special time for the entire USCB community—faculty, staff, administrative leaders, alumni and our community supporters. We enjoy honoring our graduates and celebrating the academic life of our institution.

As we all look forward to participating in the commencement activities planned for you and your family, this website will answer many questions. If you have further questions, please email so our Commencement Committee can respond.

You've worked hard to reach this goal, and we delight in your accomplishments. We know from experience that you will bring distinction to your alma mater. Nothing pleases us more than seeing our graduates serving as citizens and professionals, better equipped to contribute in communities locally and across the globe.


Al M. Panu, Ph.D.
