This ceremony is for both undergraduate and graduate economics majors. Graduating students will be individually recognized.

The department’s graduation ceremony and reception are yet to be determined.
Please note that our department event is an outdoor ceremony where shade or covering may not be readily available; please plan accordingly. The ceremony will be held, rain or shine. Tickets are not required or available.
Parking on campus is very limited. The University will provide free shuttle buses from Autzen Stadium to the main campus. It is strongly suggested that commencement guests park at Autzen Stadium and ride the shuttle bus. Parking and shuttle information is available on the University commencement website.
Graduates should gather at the event location on graduation day. Signs will direct you to the sign-in table, where you should check in and remain until the processional begins. Department staff will be present to assist graduates with questions. It is requested that family and friends of graduates not linger in the staging area to avoid congestion. Graduating students should arrive 30 minutes early. If graduates or guests need special accommodations, please notify the department at (541) 346-8845.
University Graduation Celebration
We encourage graduates and their guests to also attend the University Graduation Celebration beginning with an academic parade to the Matthew Knight Arena at 9:00 a.m. Details regarding this celebration are available from the Office of Student Life.
