As the university continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our students and guests, faculty and staff remain our top priority. No final decisions have been made as to any changes that may be implemented for our ceremonies. Updates and important information will be communicated to students as they become available. We encourage those who plan on attending to be flexible in their plans should any changes occur.


Registration for students to participate is available here. Students may register to attend until December 3.


Students who completed their graduation application by the Registrar’s Office deadline of September 20 will automatically receive updates from our office, including when registration is open. If you need to be manually added to the email distribution list please contact us.
