The Indiana University School of Medicine Commencement ceremony will be held Saturday, May 12, 2018 in the Sagamore Ballroom at the Indianapolis Convention Center from 9:30am – 11:30am. Doors open at 8:00am and students should be lined up no later than 8:30am outside of the east end of the ballroom. Tickets are not required for guests, however, seats cannot be reserved and ask that you are respectful to your fellow classmates.
Please note that IUPUI’s Commencement program and school recognition programs have been moved to Saturday, May 12 (from Sunday) at Lucas Oil Stadium and Convention Center. As a result, we anticipate additional traffic and suggest that you plan for additional travel time to access the downtown parking garages. Students who wish to attend both ceremonies will need to make special arrangements in advance and can contact Rachael Urso if interested.
Apparel required to participate in graduation can be ordered here. The new gowns now feature the presidential seal, red piping, and an upgraded cap (Tam) with green tassel. The tam and tassel are yours to keep, with the hood and gown rentals. When ordering, select IUPUI as your campus and IU School of Medicine as your school. The deadline is Friday, April 6, 2018 with all orders shipped directly to the address provided.
Special rates have been secured at area hotels for your convenience on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations should be made no later than Wednesday, April 11, 2018 in order to secure the special rate.
