123rd Commencement – Class of 2019



Apply for graduation and RSVP for commencement.

Graduation and Commencement may sound like they’re one and the same, but these terms refer to two different events. Graduation is the process of being awarded a degree. Commencement is the ceremony—with academic attire and “Pomp and Circumstance”—that celebrates graduates receiving their degrees.

This year there is a new component to Commencement: MarchingOrder! MarchingOrder gives us the means to have the graduate’s name correctly pronounced while simultaneously displaying the name and degree on the video screen onstage as each graduate crosses the stage.

» Apply for graduation! If you don’t, you will not receive your diploma, nor will the degree be conferred even if you’ve completed all the degree requirements. Even if you don’t plan on attending Commencement, you must apply for graduation.

» RSVP for Commencement! About a week after you complete the Commencement link, you will receive an email directing you to the MarchingOrder site, where you will be prompted to record the pronunciation of your name.
