Commencement is a culmination of the hard work and dedication students put into earning their degree. It is not only a way to recognize their efforts, but to celebrate graduates as they begin to apply the lessons they’ve learned in the classroom to the world beyond academia. And while the pomp and circumstance may look a little different this year, UCF is as proud as ever to honor this summer’s graduating class.

Watch on or . Individual links will be ready the week of July 27.
