For Graduating Students

Congratulations, Graduates! To make our 2020 ceremony as special as possible, each graduate will have their own personalized slide with a special message and photo, along with their name, degree and accolades. See below for important Virtual Commencement Checklist.

Virtual Commencement Checklist

  1. Add a phonetic pronunciation of your name to MarchingOrder by May 6. If you did not add your pronunciation by the deadline, your name will be read by a professional staff member for the ceremony without your phonetic pronunciation guidance.
