Graduates of the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences will be honored at their Annual Graduation Banquets, hosted by the School and their Alumni Associations for Pharmacy, Physical Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology. They will be joined by family and special guests.

The on campus Commencement Fair does not apply to the Pharmacy and Health Sciences graduates (with the exception of Speech-Language Pathology) as they are on assigned clerkships and will be unable to attend.
