Record-breaking Commencement
MSU Denver's 2015 Spring Commencement

A record number of graduates participated in MSU Denver’s 2015 Spring Commencement in May at the Denver Coliseum, an event that was split into two ceremonies to accommodate the University’s steadily rising number of graduates.

MSU Denver increased the number of degrees awarded from 2,280 in the 2004-2005 academic year to an estimated 3,650 this year. At least 1,995 bachelor degree candidates were expected to graduate this spring, a number that exceeds last spring’s record-breaking total of 1,954. This year’s undergraduate class was the most diverse in MSU Denver’s history, including 619 students of color led by 384 Latino students.
