Commencement and Undergraduate Diploma Ceremony

For as many as 6,000 Johns Hopkins University students, years of hard work, good times, intellectual intensity and personal growth are nearing their culmination: Commencement 2007.

The academic exercises ending the university's 131st year will be held at 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 17, at Homewood Field.

At that ceremony, President William R. Brody will confer bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees and certificates on graduates from all eight of the university's schools. The schools also have scheduled diploma award ceremonies or other convocations at which they will further recognize the achievements of their own graduates. Those will take place at various times from Wednesday, May 16, through Friday, May 18.

This Web site will furnish you with information on the university-wide ceremony, ceremonies at the schools, parking, Baltimore hotels and restaurants, and other logistics. It also includes information of interest about previous Commencements at Johns Hopkins and will be updated after this year's ceremonies with links that will help you to remember this special event.

Check back often as the big day approaches, and congratulations to our graduates and their families.

Looking ahead to 2008 ... Commencement 2008 will be held on Thursday, May 22.
