Graduates are welcome to attend the following ceremonies each year:

The 2019 Diploma Celebration for RAQA graduates from August 2018, December 2018, and May 2019 will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019. Invitations to graduates will be sent in early April. Please save the date!

Temple University's Commencement Ceremony for all degree programs is usually held each year in early May at the Liacouras Center on Temple's Main Campus in Philadelphia. This is an exciting and huge event, where graduates from all of the schools and colleges participate in caps and gowns and are recognized as a group by the dean of each school or college. Tickets must be ordered in advance through the Temple University website. Students are responsible for renting caps and gowns for the event to participate (approximately $100).

A smaller and more personalized graduation celebration is held specifically by the RAQA graduate program each year (either in late May or June). (The 2019 event is scheduled for Saturday, June 1). This event personally recognizes all of the graduates by name and includes a formal lunch. A professional photographer and videographer are available. Invitations will be mailed to graduates in mid-April. If you are an international student who plans to have family members attend from overseas, please contact QARAREG@temple.edu in early February for a letter to submit for visa purposes.
