Ceremony Schedule

Fall 2023 Commencement is tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 8 - Saturday, December 9 and will be held at the Yuengling Center basketball arena on the Tampa campus for students from all three USF campuses. Schedule of ceremonies and registration will be released the final week in September.


Registration for students will open the week of September 25 and close on November 24, providing students ample time to register to attend. Your registration confirmation email is proof of eligibility to attend Commencement for visa purposes to allow your overseas guests to attend. Please note that attending USF Commencement is not required and students receive diplomas in the mail approximately six to eight weeks after the end of the semester regardless of whether or not they attend a ceremony. 


There are no tickets required for guests to attend Commencement and no limit on how many guests each graduate may bring. Ceremonies are livestreamed via the USF YouTube channel for those guests who are unable to attend
