Important Security Updates for CFA Convocation

Kingsbury Hall has very recently updated their security protocols effective immediately. Please see their sign below:

Prohibited Items


*Please note that we were also told that flowers in vases and other items that may cause an obstruction in an emergency will not be allowed in the building. All that enter Kingsbury Hall are subject to a screening before entering the venue.

The College of Fine Arts Convocation Ceremony will take place on May 3 at 12pm. The ceremony will take place in Kingsbury Hall in President's Circle. Students that graduated in Summer or Fall 2023, or are planning to graduate in any semester in 2024 may participate. (Please note that this differs slightly from the University Commencement participation cutoffs)

Graduates should start to arrive at 11:15am in their regalia at their unit meeting places. These will be outdoors on the sidewalk between Kingsbury Hall and David Gardner Hall. Please follow signs and volunteer instructions.

Guests will be allowed to enter Kingsbury Hall at 11:30am. Please be seated no later than 11:55am. Those not seated by that time may have to wait until after the graduate processional to be seated.

The University Commencement Ceremony will take place on May 2 at 6pm. This ceremony will take place at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. More information can be found on the University Commencement page. This ceremony is for students who graduated in Summer or Fall 2023, and are planning on graduating in Spring 2024. A quick reference flyer about Commencement is here.

The CFA Convocation is a ticketed event. The number of tickets given is controlled by the venue and will determine the number of tickets offered to each graduate participating in the ceremony. Ticket RSVP for the 2024 Convocation has closed. Everyone that RSVP'd should have received an email to their uMail from the Dean's Office on April 3, 2024 with an update. Tickets will be distributed by your unit's Convocation Representative. (list below in Important Information)

If you missed RSVPing and need tickets, or if you need extra tickets past the ones you RSVP'd for, please contact your unit's Convocation Representative and make them aware of your need.
