Fall 2023 Commencement

Ceremony Announcement

A direct result of growing enrollment is higher attendance at Commencement, leading to longer ceremonies to individually acknowledge all attending graduates. To avoid excessive ceremony lengths, Georgia Tech will host four Commencement ceremonies this fall.

Previous fall commencements experienced unfavorable weather conditions. Dividing the graduating class into four smaller ceremonies allows the event to fit inside McCamish Pavilion with five tickets per graduate for bachelor’s and master’s students. No tickets are required for the Ph.D. ceremony. The Fall 2023 ceremonies will take place inside McCamish Pavilion.
