Graduation, (earning a degree) is an exciting accomplishment and the Commencement Ceremony is an opportunity to recognize the degree candidates. All candidates for graduation are encouraged to invite their family and friends to help them celebrate this significant milestone.
Guests over the age of two must have a ticket to attend the ceremony. Instructions for downloading tickets for guests will be provided to graduation candidates by e-mail when the RSVP is completed. Guest seating is on a first-come first-seated basis. Please arrive early for preferred seating. NOTE: Guests arriving more than 10 minutes after the start of commencement cannot be seated. We also request that a certain level of decorum be maintained during the ceremony – as such, we ask that no noise makers be brought into the commencement ceremony.
RSVP – all degree candidates must RSVP but no RSVP is required for guests. Graduation candidates are encouraged to RSVP early to be sure they are included on the ticket distribution. (more information on the process to RSVP will be posted on this website in October) You MUST apply for graduation by September 5 for Fall 2014.
Graduating students must wear regalia in the ceremony. The on-campus Bookstore has bachelor’s and master’s regalia available for purchase and doctoral regalia for purchase or rent. Please secure your regalia as soon as possible.
