Students celebrate their graduation by throwing caps in the air.

With more than 100 commencement events over four days, USC’s 2024 Commencement celebrates the graduates as they transition from students to alumni. Families can accompany their graduate to school and program ceremonies to watch them receive a diploma and then attend a reception for graduates hosted by their school and faculty. There are six hooding ceremonies for our Ph.D. graduates, and special celebrations for special academic presentations and cultural communities.
