Congratulations, Saints of 2014! 

It's your final semester... the end is in sight! Here's your checklist (specialized for graduate students) to help prepare you for commencement.

  1. Apply for graduation and indicate on your application form if you will be attending the Masters Hooding Ceremony and / or Commencement. This will serve as your R.S.V.P.
  2. Order your announcements.
  3. Pick up your cap, gown, seven commencement tickets and three Masters Hooding Ceremony tickets at Graduation Fair. Please note, you will only receive your hooding ceremony tickets if you registered to attend the event.
  4. If you can't make it to Graduation Fair, stop by the Student Financial Services Center to settle your balance and learn more about exit loan counseling.
  5. R.S.V.P. for any departmental celebrations.
  6. On commencement day, arrive at the Old Main Grand Staircase by 1 p.m., dressed in your regalia. We recommend that you leave any personal items with your guests.
  7. Walk across the commencement stage, exhale, and smile! Congratulations!
  8. Watch for an email from GradImages regarding your graduation photos and proofs.
  9. Pick up your diploma at the Office of the Registrar on or after May 30.
