The Spring 2024 Commencement will be held in person at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis on May 4.

As a reminder, all individuals seeking to enter the Convention Center Auditorium must have a Metro State Commencement wristband. To reduce disruption to the ceremony, particularly during name reading, attendees who arrive late or seek to re-enter the Auditorium after 3:55 p.m. for the first ceremony and 7:25 p.m. for the second ceremony will not be granted entry. Instead, they may watch Commencement in the lobby. Thank you for helping reduce disruptions during Saturday’s ceremonies.
