Four commencement ceremonies on Tuesday will accommodate the 1,662 students expected to earn degrees this spring from the Naveen Jindal School of Management.

On Wednesday, 883 students will be honored at two ceremonies for the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, while 72 are expected to participate in a ceremony for the School of Arts and Humanities and 190 for the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences.
