Commencement

Awards and Events

Whether you’re the graduating student or a parent of a graduate, these pages give you all the latest information on Commencement events and traditions.  As part of the John Carroll tradition, we offer many unique events and opportunities to our graduating seniors.

We celebrate the Class of 2019, as well as their family and friends, at the Baccalaureate Mass.

Two unique honors for two graduating seniors are the Beaudry Award and the Millor Orator.

Every graduate will need to pick up their Cap and Gown prior to the ceremony.

Our ROTC cadets finish their time as cadets at JCU with a Commissioning ceremony, which serves as their transition to a military career.
