AUC's commencement ceremonies are unique events that bring family, friends, faculty, and other members of the AUC community together to celebrate this important milestone in the journey to become a physician.

Degree Offering Dates

There is only one graduation ceremony per year. Degree offering dates are graduation dates when diplomas will be issued to new graduates, not a ceremony date. Students with questions about their graduation date, please contact

**All August/October/December 2016 and February/April/June 2017 graduates are invited to participate in the commencement ceremony held on Saturday, May 27, 2017 in the Maho Room at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort in St. Maarten.

June graduates please note: You must graduate by June 2, 2017 in order to participate in the ceremony on May 27. If you rotate past the June 2nd graduation date you will roll over to graduation on August 18, 2017 and will be invited to the graduation ceremony in 2018.

The May 27, 2017 date is ONLY for the commencement ceremony -- it is not an actual graduation date. Your official graduation date is the "Expected Grad Date" listed on your student summary. All diplomas are mailed to the graduate once they are cleared.

The following are graduation dates for 2016-2017:

  • August 19, 2016
  • October 28, 2016
  • December 16, 2016
  • February 24, 2017
