DENVER – Regis University’s 165th commencement ceremonies will take place April 30 and May 1, rain or shine, on the Northwest Denver Campus' Boettcher Commons (the Quad). Ceremonies for graduate and doctoral students will be held Saturday, April 30, at 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., respectively. The undergraduate ceremony will be held Sunday, May 1, at 10 a.m.

Participants and guests are encouraged to come prepared for the weather. Forecasts are calling for unseasonably wintry weather bringing a lot of moisture, possibly in the form of snow. Unfortunately, the University doesn’t have any alternative indoor options because its conference facilities have limited capacity and notably, the Field House is under construction.

An estimated 1,250 out of the approximately 1,475 Regis graduates are expected to walk in the ceremonies.
