2017 Baccalaureate and Commencement Calendar of Events

Cap and Gown Orders Due
Cap, Gown and Hood orders are placed through the Application to Graduate filled out for the Registrar's Office. Most students will have completed these forms well in advance of Commencement. Your initial response regarding attending commencement and height for gown size is noted in an email you receive from the Registrar near the beginning of spring semester. If you need to make any changes to your original responses, or have not yet filled out the Application to Graduate, that must be done by March 6th.
