How to participate in the Commencement Ceremony:

Please read this carefully.

  • You must have applied for your degree no later than April 28th, 2019 for your name to appear in the program booklet. If you did not, you can still walk in the ceremony but your name will not appear in the booklet until next year. See the Graduation Application page for details.
  • If you have applied for your degree by the deadline, there will be name card for you once you check in at the ceremony.
  • If you did not apply for your degree by the deadline you can make your own. There will be blank cards and sharpies on hand for you to use.
  • Once you get your name card, please hold on to it during the ceremony until you get on stage. The name reader will call out your name and program before you cross the stage.
