Frequently Asked Questions
Why are there so many requirements for a degree in Environmental Studies?

Why are there two ceremonies?
The general CU Commencement is where all undergraduate and graduate students officially receive their degrees. Students stand as their programs of study are called but are not recognized as individuals. CU maintains a Commencement website with specific information about the event for students and family members. There is no Commencement ceremony in the summer. August graduates may take part in either the May or December ceremonies the year they graduate.
Most departments, including the Environmental Studies Program, hold recognition ceremonies where students are called by name. The Environmental Studies event is usually the afternoon before the university commencement ceremony. Information is posted in the "events" section of this website and emailed to graduating students.
