Clarke University Commencement

Class of 2022

Graduation is a momentous occasion that honors students and their achievements.  It is the culmination of many years of effort and commitment from students and their families.  We look forward to celebrating your hard work with you this academic year.

January 2022 – Commencement information/gown ordering – Information regarding the day of Commencement will be sent to both your mailing address on file and Clarke email in January.  The email will provide information on your RSVP and gown ordering as well.

December graduates, keep your current Clarke University username and password available and check your Clarke email periodically until commencement day.  Your Clarke email will stay active until after graduation.  All information regarding Commencement will go to your Clarke email.

Friday, April 15, 2022 – Clarke’s Commencement Legacy Program Application Due – Any student who has a parent, grandparent, sibling or spouse who is a graduate of Clarke University (undergraduate or graduate) is considered to be a legacy.  Generations of families have passed on the Clarke education tradition and we want to help celebrate by providing a blue/gold cord to the Legacy Graduates of 2022.  Legacy Cords will be provided to the student and a Legacy Button to the parent, grandparent, spouse or sibling.  These items will be provided to the student at the commencement practice on Friday, May 13 and should be worn on Saturday, May 14.  If you are a Clarke 2022 graduating legacy (December 2021, May or August 2022), please fill out a Legacy Profile Form online by Friday, April 15 to receive these items.

Saturday, May 14, 2022 – Baccalaureate and Commencement Ceremonies – Clarke University has one official commencement ceremony for all students (undergraduate and graduate) completing degrees in December 2021, May 2022, and August 2022.  The Baccalaureate Ceremony, which includes a hooding ceremony, will be held in the Robert and Ruth Kehl Center at 10:00 a.m. followed by the Commencement Ceremony at 2:00 p.m.  Students are encouraged to participate in both ceremonies.
