*Graduates are limited to one car and must sign up for a 15-minute time slot in advance. All graduates who ordered a cap and gown were sent an email to sign up for a time. If you are graduating and did NOT order a cap and gown, you can still participate in the drive-up procession – please contact Becky Miller (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for more information.

Drive-up processions will allow the graduate to drive up to campus at an assigned time, park in the designated spot and get out of their car to check-in, pick up their diploma cover and program, get their photo taken, and be congratulated by faculty, staff, the dean, and President from a safe distance.

Virtual Commencement will include student and Alumni speakers as well as the formal ceremony elements of Commencement such as the national anthem, recognition of honor students and military veterans, and the conferring of degrees.

The Commencement Program will be available for viewing online by May 12 and a printed copy will be distributed to graduates at the drive-up procession.

Cap and gowns that were ordered through April 13 will be sent to your permanent address in early May – if you need to make other arrangements, please contact Becky Miller (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
