Graduate Information

Congratulations, Class of 2024, you did it! We are looking forward to honoring you during Commencement on May 18.

This year, if you are cleared to attend the ceremony, you will receive four guest tickets. You will receive an email from MarchingOrder in mid-April with instructions on how to register your chosen guests.

Check back often for more information on what to do leading up to Commencement.

Get Started

When you apply to graduate, this does not automatically register you for Commencement. For more information, visit the Registrar's Office website.

May 2024 graduates who have completed a degree application will receive an email with instructions on how to register for Commencement from MarchingOrder in mid-April.

Students who graduated in August or December 2023 who did not receive an email from MarchingOrder should update their email address online.

All graduates need to confirm their Commencement plans by Sunday, April 30.

You can order your cap and gown from the Collegiate Store.

Students graduating Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude will receive honors cords at Commencement. These cords can be picked up at the Registrar's Office in Academy Hall on Thursday, May 16, and Friday, May 17. They will also be available on commencement morning at graduate check-in on Harkness Field. The cords will be distinguished by three colors: Gold (Summa Cum Laude), Silver (Magna Cum Laude), and Bronze (Cum Laude).

A rehearsal for the Commencement ceremony was held on Wednesday, May 15, at 11 a.m. If you were not able to attend, watch the recording of rehearsal or view the presentation now.
