Welcome to Commencement at the University of Montevallo

For decades, students and families have enjoyed our beautiful campus to celebrate their accomplishments as graduates from the University of Montevallo. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the President, Faculty, and Staff, we welcome you to our historic university whose mission and values have stood firm since the institution’s creation in 1896:  To create informed scholars and citizens who possess the ability to obtain, evaluate, and effectively use information.

Congratulations and best wishes to the Class of 2015!

  • Ceremony

    Commencement is set for May 2 at 9 a.m. on Flowerhill Lawn. In case of inclement weather, there will be an announcement via email and web. The back-up location for commencement is the McChesney Student Activity Center.

  • Parking

    Parking will be available in several areas. Handicapped-accessible parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Handicapped parking is also available in each lot. For those who have elderly or handicapped guests who may not be able to walk the distance of the lawn, we encourage you to arrive no later than 8:15 a.m. so that you may drive your guest up the Flowerhill driveway and then park elsewhere.

    Shuttle service will be available before and after the ceremony in the color-coded lots provided on the map.

  • Rehearsal

    Rehearsal will take place on Flowerhill Lawn on Friday at 4 p.m. At rehearsal, you will receive important information concerning the ceremony, your academic transcript, and information about the Alumni Association.  Again, if the weather is deemed inclement, we will move rehearsal to the McChesney Student Activity Center.

  • Reception

    The University of Montevallo National Alumni Association will host a breakfast reception in honor of the graduates and families at 7:30 a.m. Saturday on King Quad.

  • Following Commencement

    We ask that all guests remain at their seats until the stage party and graduates process past the seating.
