Frequently Asked Questions
Commencement 2023

Do my guests need tickets?

No. Our ceremony is held on Main Lawn, where we are able to accommodate all guests. Graduates will pick up guest passes at Grad Fair in the event that Commencement is moved indoor for inclement weather.

Cap and Gown Packages

All undergraduate and graduate students participating in the commencement ceremonies MUST purchase their cap and gown packages online directly through our vendor, Herff Jones, in order to participate in the May ceremonies. Packages will be picked up at Grad Fair. If you have not purchased a cap and gown prior to the order deadline (March 10) we will assume that you are not planning to walk in the ceremony.
