Winter Graduation Ceremony for August and December 2014 Graduates

The College of Liberal Arts will be hosting its winter graduation ceremony in the Temple Performing Arts Center on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. While the Temple Performing Arts Center is a magnificent new state-of-the-art venue, seating for guests will be limited and the event will be ticketed. At the moment, we are only able to guarantee three tickets for every graduate.

We understand that many students would prefer to share this joyous occasion with many more of their family members and friends, so we are happy to provide you with the choice to participate instead in our May graduation ceremony. There will be no ticketing for the May CLA graduation ceremony, and all students participating in CLA’s May ceremony will be able to invite as many guests as they wish.

Students will receive an email with information on how to RSVP for these events in October.

If you have any questions please email claugrad@temple.edu.
