Spring 2022 Commencement

The Spring 2022 Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2022, in the Adams Center at the University of Montana.  Graduates of the W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation will be recognized at the 9:00am ceremony. 

The W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation would like to invite you to a reception by the High Wheels (on the north side of the Forestry Building) directly following the morning Commencement Ceremony.   This is a great opportunity to mingle with faculty and staff.  Light refreshments will be provided for you and your guests.

At this point, UM does not anticipate requiring tickets or any restrictions on the number of guests students can invite.  Updates about the Main UM Ceremony, how to RSVP, and the ordering of regalia can be found on UM's Spring 2022 Commencement page. 

Congratulations on nearing the completion of your degree program!  Below are the deadlines and fees for filing graduation paperwork for both graduate and undergraduate students along with links to the electronic applications and other graduation resources.
