Highlight of Events:

Commencement Ceremonies—Friday, May, 13

  • The main ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. in Vanderbilt Stadium followed by the undergraduate ceremony, which will also take place in Vanderbilt Stadium, and graduate and professional school ceremonies in respective locations across campus. The main and undergraduate ceremonies will be livestreamed on the Vanderbilt homepage and the Vanderbilt Commencement website.
  • Tickets are not needed for the main ceremony or the undergraduate ceremony; some graduate and professional school ceremonies may require tickets, but this will vary by school.
  • The Class of 2022 Commencement program order form is for graduates to order additional programs. One printed program will be mailed to each graduate automatically once they are available.

Processional information for Class of 2022 graduates can be found on this webpage.

  • Strawberries and Champagne Social—Friday, May 13
    • After the undergraduate ceremony, graduates and guests will be invited to attend a social with a strawberries and champagne toast, lunch and entertainment. Graduate and professional schools may have their own separate receptions for graduates.

We highly encourage attendees to download the Vanderbilt Campus Guidebook app. It is a one-stop shop for everything Commencement, including a complete schedule, campus map, important contact information, FAQs and more. The app will also send alerts if any last-minute changes take place, such as weather contingencies. Be sure to “allow notifications” to receive information and reminders during Commencement.

The app is available on the Apple iOS App Store and the Google Play Store. You can find the app through those two links, or by searching for “Vanderbilt Campus Guidebook.” If you don’t have access to either of those platforms, a “lite” version can also be accessed as a website.
