The main University of Oregon graduation ceremonies take place in June, when students who have completed their degrees in fall, winter, and spring terms graduate. The University of Oregon also has a small graduation ceremony in August for those who have completed their degrees in the summer, although Ph.D. defenses are not scheduled during the summer (see above). There are two Spring (or June) Commencement ceremonies. The University-wide graduation typically takes place in McArthur Court, while the Department of Anthropology ceremony takes place outdoors on the east side of Condon Hall. The Department of Anthropology policy is that all requirements for graduation must be completed for a student to walk in the Department’s graduation ceremony.
