Countdown to Commencement - Your To Do List

Checklist, Tell Us Your Story

Candidate Checklist

  • Apply for Graduation. This can be done anytime of year but is most effective when the deadlines are met. The application triggers a review of the student's record to ensure they are completing the final degree requirements and that the student is officially added to the graduation list.
  • Register for Commencement. Beginning in March and when you are added to the official graduation list, a unique-to-you registration link will be sent to your student email account.
  • Act on your plans for alumni membership, graduate school, and career advancement.

Note: Your seat at Commencement is reserved only when you have both purchased your cap and gown and registered to attend.
