Congratulations, Mason Graduates! 

George Mason University invites you to celebrate your achievements at the Winter 2022 Commencement Ceremony on December 15, 2022.

Commencement is a university-wide ceremony with musical performance, inspiring speeches, pageantry, pomp and circumstance. At this ceremony, Doctoral candidates will be recognized by name, and they will cross the stage to receive their degree.

Undergraduate and Master's graduates will not be announced individually at Commencement but will be recognized in groups by major and program.

The December 14th and 15th Patriot Procession are opportunities for Undergraduate and Master's graduates to hear their names and degree announced, and be photographed crossing the stage to receive their degree.


Commencement ticket information, and Patriot Procession sign-up information will be available in early October.
