Class of 2020

POSTPONED until further notice

The graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 has been postponed due to the Coronavirus until it is safe for us to gather. We are working with students to pick a new date.

For the Vision Science Graduation Ceremony, click here.

The Ceremony will take place from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM at Hertz Hall, with the Reception immediately following from 12:00 – 3:00 PM on Minor Plaza. During Old Home Week, the Admissions and Student Affairs Office will hold an information session on Graduation matters, including a walk-through of the Procession and will go over all administrative paperwork that students need to submit before Saturday’s ceremony. Also, please note that this year the ceremony falls on the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Graduation Announcements

You may order your own personalized graduation announcements to share your achievement with friends and family. Please note that these announcements cannot be used in place of graduation tickets so each guest will need a ticket to attend. To order your own personalized graduation announcements, visit the Jostens website.

Graduation Regalia (tams, gowns, and hoods) will be rented. Do NOT purchase regalia directly from the bookstore. The Admissions and Student Affairs staff will coordinate regalia rentals. We will send out sign-ups for Regalia in early February.

The Rental Regalia distribution for graduates will happen during Old Home Week during the Admissions and Student Affairs session. During the reception, please return your regalia (tam, gown, and hood) to the Admissions and Student Affairs Office (Room 380) for a receipt. If we do not receive your regalia, there is a $350 fee.
