The bulk of the commencement records are arranged into two subseries. The first subseries contains materials related to final exercises and graduation excercises. The second subseries contains materials related to baccalaureate services. Materials in these two subseries are grouped together into files according to the date of exercises and services. The files are then arranged in chronological order.

Commencement records that do not belong in either of the two subseires described above are filed into a third subseries called "Other commencement records". All of the materials in this subseries are arranged chronologically according to their date of creation.
