Graduation and Commencement

Marylhurst Graduation and Commencement

For many of our graduates, commencement marks one of the most memorable experiences of their educational journey. We strive to provide all the details you might need so you can celebrate a smooth, stress-free graduation process and commencement day.


Graduation refers to receiving your diploma and having your degree awarded. You must apply for graduation even if you do not plan to attend the commencement ceremony. Your diploma or certificate will be mailed to you. Diplomas are not given out at the commencement ceremony.

Apply to Graduate

Commencement is the traditional graduation ceremony, and Marylhurst University holds its annual commencement in June. You are eligible and invited to participate if you were awarded a diploma during the previous fall or winter terms or have applied to graduate for spring or summer term.
