Missouri S&T commencement ceremonies have changed and will now include all students from a given department within the same ceremony.  Please make sure to check which ceremony your department will be participating in.  As we continue to grow as a university it was necessary to review our commencement ceremony structure.  The new structure will allow undergraduate students and graduate students to participate in the same ceremony for their department.
