FAQs


  • How can my family watch my ceremony?

    Graduates will be emailed a live stream link in November to share with family and friends. You can also find it in the ceremony listing section on this page.


  • Where do I order regalia?

    Your cap and gown request are processed when you apply for graduation and is ordered based on your height and weight that is noted on the Graduation Application. Graduates keep their cap, gown and hood, so there is no need to return them after the commencement ceremony. The deadline to order regalia is OCTOBER 22.

    Your cap, gown and hood (if applicable) will be shipped to the address you provided on the graduation application.


  • What do I need to do to prepare for graduation?

    Graduates will receive an email when our virtual graduation fair opens. The graduation fair helps students complete all necessary preparations for participating in Commencement, such as verifying diploma information, name pronunciation, graduation announcements and class rings.


  • When will I receive my diploma?

    Diplomas and two commencement programs will be shipped to graduates in January listing the names of students that completed their degree requirements in August or December.

    The deadline to order regalia is October 22, and it will be shipped to graduates. Students earning a certificate will not dress in regalia for their certificate ceremony and do not receive a diploma cover or programs.
