Graduation Ceremony FAQ's
If you are attending the commencement in-person, you will be provided any applicable honors regalia at check in. If you are not attending the commencement, please email [email protected] after you have been placed in Graduate status (this is typically 1-2 weeks after your last class). Be sure to include your Student ID and a mailing address, we can send you any applicable honors regalia.
The eligibility requirements for commencement participation are as follows:
Spring ceremony: Grad date is between January 1 and June 30
Fall ceremony: Grad date is between July 1 and December 31
Latin Academic Honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Summa Cum Laude) regalia are awarded to undergraduate students. All Masters students are held to a higher academic standard and are not eligible for University honors. Please note that the masters hood and gown are different from undergraduate regalia and indicate the distinction and honor as a Masters level graduate.
The petition to graduate form is not mandatory for undergraduate or Masters students to participate in a commencement. All doctoral students must submit the petition to graduate form to indicate participation as the doctoral form has different information requests.
All participating graduates must have a university approved cap and gown that was purchased from our authorized vendor to participate for in-person commencements. For virtual events, the cap and gown is optional.
The Spring 2022 location/date/time have not been determined at this time. Please check back after the fall commencement has concluded.
