The main ceremony for Arizona State University spring graduation will take place at Sun Devil Stadium this year at 7:30 p.m. May 12, to accommodate a record number of graduates and their guests. Almost 11,000 students are scheduled to graduate.

Commencement for 2,800 graduate students will be at 4 p.m. May 11 in Wells Fargo Arena. The undergraduate ceremony for almost 8,000 bachelor's degree recipients will be the following night in Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

ASU will present the University Medal of Excellence to three individuals, Ira and Mary Lou Fulton and Masaji Inoshita. The Fultons are longtime benefactors of ASU who are among the nation's leaders in targeted philanthropy. Inoshita, a World War II Japanese internment camp survivor and U.S. Army veteran, became an historian and civil rights advocate, spending much of his adult life speaking about race relations.

ASU President Michael Crow will be the commencement speaker at each ceremony. Free parking will be available throughout the Tempe campus, except for metered spaces and residence hall lots. Parking information for commencement and convocation ceremonies is at http://cfo.asu.edu/pts-graduation-commencement.
