Summer 2023 Commencement

WHEN: August 4-5, 2023
WHERE: Addition Financial Arena


On behalf of the University of Central Florida, we look forward to celebrating with you at the Summer 2023 commencement ceremonies that will take place on August 4-5. I am very excited to extend my congratulations and best wishes to the Class of 2023. Your optimism, determination, persistence and compassion are an inspiration to the entire UCF community.

When someone says, “Go Knights,” I always hear the reply, “Charge On!”

It is such a fitting philosophy for this university, because that’s what Knights do. And I know you will continue to Charge On and make a profound mark on this world — tackling grand challenges through your unwavering service to others and to society.

Graduates, you have been exceptional ambassadors of this university, and I have no doubt you will accomplish much more than you now imagine for yourselves, and that in everything you do, you will make UCF, your family and your community proud. Congratulations again on this tremendous achievement.
