Commencement Schedule

Degree Conferral Ceremonies are held annually to officially bestow graduates with Bachelors (Undergraduate), Masters or Doctoral (Graduate) degrees.  Specific groups of students celebrate achievements at University-Wide Recognition & Certificate Ceremonies.

Health & Safety

Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 will no longer be required to attend events at UB.

Effective immediately, spectators do not need to show a vaccination card upon entering sporting events at UB Stadium or Alumni Arena, or to attend cultural events at the Center for the Arts and Slee Hall.

This also applies to students and guests attending commencement ceremonies in May.

Masks are no longer required at UB events, either, part of an earlier decision to lift that mandate for most campus settings on March 5, based on updated guidance from the state and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
