Application Deadlines

Spring 2018 Graduation: Undergraduate graduation application deadline is approaching. Please complete your application.


Commencement Check-In

Prior to the start of commencement rehearsal on Friday, May 11, 2018, all graduates are required to stop by the Commencement Check-In station beginning at 8 a.m. to pick up their line-up card.


The line-up card will be used during the commencement ceremony. The card will have the student’s name, honor (if any) and a number. This number represents your place in the Processional on Saturday morning.

The Dean of your degree program will announce your name during the ceremony using the card.  Photographers will also contact graduates with information and proofs from the event using the information you place on the back of the card. For hard to read names, graduates may write, as clearly as possible, a phonetic spelling or pronunciation of their name on the card. The card must be safely maintained while in your possession. 

It is the responsibility of the graduate to bring the card to the ceremony. It may be very difficult to obtain a replacement card on Saturday morning.

Honor Cords

Qualifying graduates will be given the honor stole. Replacement stoles will not be available.
