Ceremony Attendance and Diploma Mailing Form

To assure receipt of your diploma and adequate seating at the Saturday and Sunday ceremonies, all degree candidates for May and August (with the exception of the August doctoral candidates) MUST complete the online ceremony attendance form. This form will not be able to be filled out until after you have applied to graduate through your Bannerweb account and your graduation application has been processed by the Commencement Office (usually 1-2 business days). The form must be completed no later than Friday, May 8, 2020, whether or not you plan to attend the ceremonies, and is only for degree candidates. The university does not need to know the number of guests planning to attend as all ceremonies are open to the public and no tickets are required. An email will be sent to all degree candidates once the attendance form is available.

  • Associate's and Bachelor's Degree Candidates: Make certain that you indicate your plans to participate at both the university and divisional ceremonies.
  • Master's Degree Candidates: Make certain that you indicate your plans to participate at both the university and divisional ceremonies.
  • Doctoral Candidates: Indicate if you will participate in the Saturday, May 16, hooding ceremony being held at 1:00 p.m., 152 Shideler Hall. Doctoral candidates will not be hooded at the 10:30 a.m. university ceremony but are welcome to attend.

About four to six weeks after the ceremonies, after grades have been computed and your eligibility for graduation has been confirmed, your diploma will be mailed to the address you provide on the online form. If you do not complete this form, your diploma will be mailed to the home mailing address on file with the university. If your address needs to be changed after submitting your form, please email the Commencement Office so the staff may update your record accordingly.

Students having their diploma mailed to an international address will be contacted by the Commencement Office prior to graduation to verify their address and to obtain a phone number they may be reached at in case of problems with delivery.
