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 2017!


Commencement is set for May 6, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. on Flowerhill. The processional will form on Main Quad; graduates should report no later than 8:30 a.m.


Guest parking will be available throughout campus and a shuttle service will be available to take guests from parking areas to the ceremony location.

If you have family members or guests with disabilities (or that may have difficulty walking longer distances), we suggest you arrive prior to 8:30 a.m. The driveway of the Flowerhill residence will remain open until that time–guests may be dropped off easily in this area which is adjacent to guest seating. There is a limited amount of handicapped accessible parking at the base of Flowerhill Lawn.

Once the ceremony concludes, the shuttle service will resume.


Rehearsal will take place on Friday, May 5, at 4:00 p.m. on Flowerhill Lawn. At rehearsal. you will receive important information concerning the ceremony, your academic transcript, and information about the Alumni Association.


The University of Montevallo Alumni Association will host a reception in honor of the graduates and families at 8:00 a.m. on King Quad.

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