Masters Recognition and Commencement Reception

PLEASE NOTE – The COSE Master's Recognition and Commencement Reception is a separate event from University Commencement with its own registration process. If you want to register for the University Commencement, use the Commencement button on the right.

COSE is inviting Fall 2020 Master’s graduates to join with Spring 2021 Master’s graduates for a combined Master's Recognition (Hooding Ceremony) and Commencement Reception at 3 p.m. May 8. Please note that each graduate is limited to no more than two guests at the ceremony. Registration for this event is now closed.

Registered Graduates:

Weather permitting, the ceremony will take place in the area of Atwood Mall immediately outside of the Northeast corner of Brown Hall. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the ceremony, though you are welcome to come earlier if you like. We will have light refreshments available for you and your guests.

If the weather is poor, the backup location is the Brown Hall Auditorium. In this case, the check-in location will be the hallway immediately outside of the auditorium.

 Please bring your regalia and hood with you for the ceremony. We will ask that one of your guests perform the placing of the hood. If you do not have someone available to do this let us know at check-in.

The ceremony should take between one hour and 90 minutes in total. We will take photos during the event, though family and friends are certainly welcome to take photos as well. We will have a large screen set up in the Brown Hall Auditorium hallway scrolling through the graduates names – this is another popular spot for photos either before or after the ceremony.

Most of all, we want to extend our congratulations to all of you and express how excited we are to gather as a college for the first time in a long time.

If you have any questions, please contact the COSE Dean’s Office at

Thank you and Go Huskies!
