Commencement every May is a big weekend for families. Tulane’s Unified Commencement Ceremony is a one-of-a-kind celebration that combines university and New Orleans traditions to honor our graduating students. Use the comprehensive Commencement website for information on the event schedule, speaker and answers to frequently asked questions. Every spring Tulane Parent Programs offers a webinar on “Commencement Preparation” to help you plan your visit. Look for the PDF of the webinar slides and a link to the video in the Webinar Archive.

Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren will deliver the keynote address and receive an honorary doctorate at the 2017 Unified Commencement ceremony. Read more about our speaker here.

If your student’s graduation is a few years down the road, but you like to plan ahead, check out Commencement dates for future years.
