Bloomington Commencement Feature

Hooding of Doctoral Candidates at Graduate Commencement in May

Doctoral candidates who are being hooded are responsible for arranging with their faculty mentors to meet them at Gladstein Fieldhouse, 1001 E. 17th Street, directly east of Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall (where Commencement takes place) for robing and lineup. Both students and their faculty mentors are instructed to arrive for robing and lineup by 1 p.m.. on Friday, May 5.

All About the Ceremonies

Spring 2017 Grad Ceremony

No Tickets Required

Tickets are not issued for Indiana University Bloomington’s Commencement ceremonies. Commencement is free and open to the public, and there is open seating. Commencements at other institutions often have more limited seating, making tickets necessary.

Because the ceremony is so well attended, we request that parties assemble outside Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall and then be seated together. Audience members are asked to kindly refrain from saving seats for latecomers.
