2017 Commencement Ceremony

Congrats Gauchos!

Please join us for the 2017 Commencement Ceremony at the Grand Canyon University Arena on May 12th at 1:00 p.m.

For the past three years, student participation has been between 450 – 656 graduates. Together, students, faculty, staff and guests bring attendance to over 5,000 for this event. Emphasizing and celebrating the achievements of our students continues to be a campus-wide effort! 

The Arena is located on Camelback Road & 33rd Avenue. The arena has been expanded to seat 7000 attendees. Two parking garages have been added to support parking needs for arena events.  Parking, arrival time, and entry location info will be sent closer to the ceremony. This inside venue provides a great atmosphere for our ever-growing population of student graduates and their families and maintains a west-side location.

The GCC Commencement Committee appreciates your ongoing support of student success and attendance at the Ceremony.

2017 Graduates!
