Students must apply for graduation in order to have the degree or certificate noted on the official transcript.
The deadline to opt-in for participation in this event has passed.

Are there any fees?
There are no fees to participate in the Commencement Ceremony. Caps & gowns are provided at no cost to students as well.
Will graduates be walking in the ceremony?

How do students participate if the event is virtual?
We are still working out the details, and will update you soon. We will coordinate a cap and gown pick up on the main campus in early May. Then, students will likely be asked to upload a photo in their cap and gown to a Dropbox account that we will use in the ceremony. More concrete details will be provided as soon as possible.
Are their stoles or cords for honors societies or veterans?
Contact your faculty advisor.

Diplomas are mailed out typically within a month after the completion of the semester that you are graduating in.
