Fall Commencement, 2023

Alan Flurry

The Class of 2023 rolls on – into caps and gowns, toward next steps, new goals, and a bright future glimmering with a fresh degree. Today's the day! Celebrate graduates!

The University of Georgia welcomes its newest alumni on Dec. 15 as 1,626 undergraduates and 1,340 graduate students—a total of 2,966—have met requirements to participate in the university’s fall Commencement ceremonies:

The undergraduate ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. in Stegeman Coliseum. Harold Alonza Black, emeritus professor of finance at the University of Tennessee and notable University of Georgia alumnus, will deliver the fall undergraduate Commencement address. The graduate ceremony will follow at 2 p.m. in Stegeman Coliseum. Tickets are required for all graduates and guests at the fall undergraduate ceremony, but they are not required for the graduate ceremony.


UGA will recognize 17 students as First Honor Graduates for maintaining a 4.0 cumulative GPA in all work attempted at UGA as well as all college-level transfer work prior to or following enrollment at the university.

An estimated 319 doctoral candidates and 1,021 master’s and specialist degree students will be eligible to walk in the graduate ceremony. Graduate speaker Dale Greene joined the faculty of the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources in 1986 before becoming dean in 2015.

Congratulations to our graduates and welcome to campus, family and friends!
