Elon University’s 2019 Commencement Ceremonies

Elon’s 129th Undergraduate Commencement is scheduled for Friday, May 24, 2019. The Commencement address will be delivered by Al Drago, a 2015 Elon graduate and award-winning photojournalist.

Elon Commencement 2019 will feature changes to the graduation program to better accommodate students and their families, with undergraduate ceremonies previously held on Saturdays shifted this year to Friday.

Following an outdoor ceremony for all graduates at 8:45 a.m. at Scott Plaza, there will be two separate diploma-awarding ceremonies for the Class of 2019 held in Schar Center. Each ceremony will last about two hours.

  • Elon College, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Education will award diplomas at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony.
  • The Martha and Spencer Love School of Business and the School of Communications will award diplomas at the 3:30 p.m. ceremony.
