LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 2, 2010) – As students settle in for the last few weeks of the semester, those graduating in December and those who graduated in August still have a chance to participate in UK’s first winter commencement.

August and December graduates are invited to attend the appropriate ceremony for their degree level. All degree recipients will be recognized by name as they cross the main stage to be congratulated by President Todd and the dean of their college. Degrees for doctoral and master’s candidates will be conferred at 3 p.m. in the Concert Hall of the Singletary Center for the Arts. Bachelor’s degrees will be conferred at 6 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum.

Those who register by 8 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 6, will have their names appear on the screen as they walk across the stage; students are welcome to register after Dec. 6 but unfortunately the opportunity for their name to appear on the screen may not be available. Academic regalia are available from the UK Bookstore.
