Fall 2021 Grad Slide

  Will I get a graduate slide if I don't complete the form?

Only graduates who have submitted a Grad Slide form with a photo or video will be part of the Grad Walk segment of the virtual convocation celebration. All Grad Slide forms must be completed by Friday, October 15. We encourage you to complete the graduate slide form as soon as possible to have it included in our virtual graduation celebrations.

Convocation Box and Parchments

  Will I still get my degree parchment if there is no convocation ceremony?

Ceremony

  Do I still graduate even though there is no convocation ceremony?

Students who have applied to graduate and successfully met their degree requirements will be approved by Senate to graduate from their program. Students who have been approved to graduate will receive a confirmation email from the Office of Registrarial Services after the clearance to graduate deadline and you will receive your degree in the mail.

  Will I be able to attend a future ceremony if I have not had the chance to attend an in-person convocation ceremony as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?

Yes, students who have graduated but have not yet attended an in-person convocation ceremony as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will be invited to attend a future ceremony.

The University requires contact information to keep you informed about these plans. Please keep your contact information up to date with Alumni Affairs and Development.
