Graduation is just the beginning for our students.  Twice as many Creighton graduates are thriving in five key elements of well-being as compared to graduates nationally, and 99 percent are employed, volunteering or attending graduate or professional school within nine months of graduation.

Creighton University confers degrees three times per year: August, December and May.

Annual University commencement ceremonies are held in May. Students who complete their degree programs in August or December may attend the May commencement ceremony following completion or, with the approval of the Dean's Office, in the preceding May.

Commencement Speaker

Paul Farmer, MD, PhD, co-founder of Partners in Health, an international social justice and health organization, delivered the 2017 commencement address at both morning and afternoon ceremonies.
