MANOA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The University of Hawaii is implementing a pilot program to make a big change to its spring commencement ceremony in 2017.

Rather than having two ceremonies that separate undergraduates and advanced degree graduates, the ceremonies will be divided by college. This means undergraduates and advanced degree graduates will walk together.

The university expects the pilot program will lessen traffic congestion, increase parking and make more seating available for family and friends.

The morning ceremony will consist of undergraduate and advanced degree students from:
College of Arts and Humanities
Hawaiinuiakea School of Hawaiian Knowledge
Interdisciplinary Studies
College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature
College of Natural Sciences
School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology
School of Pacific and Asian Studies
College of Social Sciences
College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources

The afternoon ceremony will consist of undergraduate and advanced degree students from:
School of Architecture
Shidler College of Business
College of Education
College of Engineering
William S. Richardson School of Law
John A. Burns School of Medicine
School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene
Public Health Studies
Myron B. Thompson School of Social Work
School of Travel Industry Management
