We are now in the process of having announcements (not invitations) printed. Each graduate will receive 10 announcements free of charge. They will be distributed along with your regalia from the Registration Office.
If you’d like to order extra announcements, please use this order form. Any extra announcement must be ordered by Monday, March 20th. The minimum order is $5.00, which will be billed to your student account. Graduates must order announcements in increments of 10. The announcements will be sent to the address that you provide on the form.
All who march in the procession at commencement will wear full academic regalia. It is most appropriate for men to wear ties, as necklines are visible. Women should consider wearing blouses or dresses with buttons so that regalia hoods can be easily fixed to these (instead of pinned). After Commencement, graduates may keep their regalia.
Honor insignia on academic regalia are limited to official pins (Psi Chi pins or other seminary-sanctioned academic honors). Other insignia (e.g., cords, capes, and stoles) or decorations are not permitted.
Students who are not attending the ceremony will have the diploma and regalia mailed to them in late May.
When caring for the gown from home after graduation, use a dryer cycle of permanent press for 15-20 minutes to remove wrinkles. The hood should be lightly ironed.
Your name will be listed in the program, but not announced.
