Commencement is a formal ceremony that celebrates and recognizes the academic achievements of graduates. The ceremony marks a beginning for graduates who are ready to embark on a new journey in their professional lives.
The FIU Bookstore maintains a list of undergraduate students who have earned 40 credits at FIU and a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher as of their most recently completed semester. Students meeting these criteria will be allowed to purchase an honor cord to be worn over their regalia during commencement.
FIU commencement exercises take place three times a year at the end of the spring, summer and fall semesters. Find more information at https://commencement.fiu.edu/schedule.
