All graduating students may participate in commencement ceremonies to celebrate their academic accomplishments. Participating in the commencement ceremony does not confirm graduation as you will not receive your diploma during the ceremony. You can find more information about your diploma
and when to expect to receive it.
In order to have your name appear in the commencement program, the Office of the Registrar must approve your graduation application
by March 20 for spring and October 20 for fall commencements.
After applying to graduate in VandalWeb, you should confirm your Ceremony Reservation and Hometown
so the Office of the Registrar will know your plans to attend. Submit your hometown because it will print in the commencement program and public newspapers. You may return to Ceremony Reservation and Hometown
during the semester to update your ceremony plans as needed.
