Preparing for Graduation and Commencement

Welcome graduating students. Maryville University looks forward to celebrating your academic achievement at our Spring 2022 Commencement ceremonies this April. Below, you’ll find the steps you’ll need to complete in order to participate in the ceremony, plus celebration activities and helpful information about the day.

Important Dates

April 22, 2022

  • Call the Pronunciation Hotline

Required Steps

  • Graduation Application

    In order to confer your degree, participate in Commencement activities and to receive your diploma, you must apply for graduation. You can apply here.

    To be included in the Commencement Program and virtual ceremonies, you must apply for graduation by February 18.


  • Regalia

    How to Order
    The link to order your cap and gown is available when you apply for graduation. Graduates keep their cap, gown and hood, so there is no need to return them after the commencement ceremony.

    To have in time for commencement ceremonies, regalia must be ordered by March 4. If you missed the ordering site, you may order your cap, gown and hood (if applicable) here.


  • Name Pronunciation

    Call the Pronunciation Hotline (314-529-9211) to ensure your name is pronounced correctly at Commencement.

  • Verifying Diploma Information

    All graduates receive an email requesting verification of the following information:

    • Diploma Name/ Commencement Name
    • Degree and Major
    • Diploma Address (address to which your diploma will be sent)

    You may also use this link to look up and verify your information if you have not completed the verification process sent to you in your email. Email with further questions.

    Diplomas are typically shipped three to four weeks after the end of the semester.

    When you graduate, you can choose to receive a digital version of your diploma in addition to the physical diploma which is sent via mail. The digital diploma is sent as an email attachment and is added to a mobile wallet app on your mobile device(s). It is coded and certifiable using Blockchain technology, which is used to both protect and verify your diploma. To learn more, visit the Digital Diploma page.


Suggested Steps

    We have everything you need to celebrate virtually with family and friends. A variety of gifts and celebration merchandise are available at the on-campus M Store and online at The M Store.


  • Career Success Survey

    Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! As you transition to your first role after your degree or continue in a current role, we hope you know that Maryville will always be a resource for your career needs. If you are in the search process, there will be an opportunity in this survey to request to meet online, on the phone, or in-person with Career Success.

    Please take a few moments to complete the Career First Destination Survey about your post-graduation plans. Summaries of the results are used for accreditation and federal and state compliance. Knowing how our graduates are doing post-graduation both ensures the future value and integrity of your degree as well as helps other students make decisions about their educational and career plans.

    You can access the survey here.


  • Class Gift

    What is the Class Gift?

    Each graduate can celebrate their success and personal Maryville experience with a class gift. A gift of $25 or more is recognized with an alumni shirt and brick inscribed with the graduate’s name, degree and major in the Graduate Walkway on campus.


  • Maryville Grads Give Back

    Maryville Grads Give Back is an invitation to reach out to your community through service (virtual or otherwise) before you go forth as a Maryville graduate and receive a terrific t-shirt for your efforts! There are multiple ways to be a part of Maryville Grads Give Back. You may participate in one of the community service projects organized through the Office of Service & Spiritual Life and the Community Service Club. You and your fellow grads can also come up with your own project or volunteer through a campus organization. Perhaps you are volunteering already.

    If you plan to participate in a way other than through the Office of Service & Spiritual Life and the Community Service Club, please contact us with the name of the organization with which you volunteered via email to Steve DiSalvo. Include your t-shirt size and arrangements can be made for you to get your shirt.
