All degree candidates are to report to Yager Stadium, with their robe and cap in hand, no later than 12:30 p.m. No robes and caps are to be worn to Yager Stadium. All items on the prohibited items list will be confiscated if found on any person preparing to enter the field. The ushers and marshals will notify the candidates when it is time to put on their academic attire. Please see review the prohibited items list prior to the ceremony.

Practice for Master Degree Students

Master degree students are now recognized at the divisional ceremonies. Master degree students are encouraged to check their Miami email account regularly as multiple sources will be emailing to make sure students know what divisional ceremony they should be attending so they may make appropriate plans. All students are encouraged to attend the University ceremony on Saturday, but only doctoral students will be individually recognized at the ceremony. Photographers will be onsite for each ceremony to ensure all students will have a picture taken as they come off the stage. For more information, please email The Graduate School or email the Commencement Office.
