Sitka will host a live commencement ceremony this year. We will be reading names of students
in attendance who completed in Summer 2022, Fall 2022, and candidates for Spring 2023.
If you plan on walking please register yourself and your guests for the event at Eventbrite.
The live ceremony will be May 5, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. at Centennial Hall. Graduates arrive by 6:00
for instructions and Graduation line up.
There will be a reception following the ceremony.
Participating in commencement does not guarantee completion of your degree. All degree
requirements must be met in order to receive your degree. Please work with the registrar's
office for degree completion.
Are you unable to walk in the ceremony, but want your photo in the slideshow? Contact John
Ingman at email@example.com to have your picture included in the ceremony.
This is a mask optional event.
Accommodations can be provided upon request for students and guests with disabilities. If you
or your guest needs disability-related accommodations please contact UAS Disability Services in
advance of the event by phone. 907-796-6450 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
