The St. John’s College 227th Commencement ceremony for both the undergraduate and graduate Class of 2019 will be held indoors on Sunday, May 12, at 10:30 a.m. This year's speaker will be St. John’s tutor Robert Abbott (A04).

College officials announced that Commencement exercises will be indoors in the Francis Scott Key (FSK) Auditorium and admission will be by ticket only and limited to immediate family of the graduates. Due to fire code regulations, seating is by ticket only for the FSK auditorium, the FSK lobby and the Conversation Room. The reception will be held in the Iglehart Gym immediately following the ceremony. Students should check their email for additional information.
