Before the Ceremony

  • You will be required to wear JHU regalia during the in-person graduation ceremony, so be sure to purchase your regalia well in advance of the ceremony. Your regalia will be shipped directly to your desired home address.
  • Graduates must register with MarchingOrder to confirm their information for the ceremony. In March graduates will be notified with specific information on how to register with MarchingOrder.

Day of the Ceremony

Please join us for the 2024 KSAS Master’s Graduation Ceremony at Homewood Field. Information about parking and transportation to campus can be found on the JHU Commencement parking and transportation web page. Family and friends are welcome to share this moment from the Homewood Field stands, or to watch the live-streamed ceremony online.

Ralph S. O'Connor Center for Recreation and Well-Being

At 5 p.m. on Monday, May 20, you will join your fellow graduates for robing and line-up at the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center, located next door to Homewood Field.

You will need to bring your regalia and we encourage comfortable footwear as you will be walking on turf and uneven walkways. Plan to carry only your essential items, such as a wallet or mobile phone, as you will not be able to leave personal belongings in the robing area. Please note that we will not have additional regalia available on the day of the ceremony.

The procession onto Homewood Field will start at 6:30 p.m., leading into the formal start of the graduation ceremony at 7 p.m.

During the ceremony, you will hear from university leaders, with a main address delivered by our keynote speaker, who will be announced later this spring. Afterward, graduates will be called alphabetically by degree program and will walk across the stage to be congratulated by Christopher S. Celenza, James B. Knapp Dean, Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.

The graduation ceremony will last until approximately 9 p.m.

After the Ceremony

Immediately following the graduation ceremony, you are invited to attend a celebratory reception on Keyser Quad, which is just a short walk from Homewood Field and is located in front of the iconic Gilman Hall. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your guests to mingle with your fellow graduates and commemorate the completion of your degree.

Keyser Quad Reception

Diplomas will be mailed to all spring-term graduates later in the summer, once all degrees are reviewed. You do not need to attend the KSAS Master’s Graduation Ceremony or the JHU university-wide commencement in order to receive your diploma.
