There are no tickets for this event, but we require check-in at the door. So, we request that you adhere to the requested number of guests in order to accommodate all of our graduates. Please RSVP, as we need an accurate count of attendees in the event that someone needs to request extra seating.
All candidates for graduation should wear graduation apparel (cap and gown).
Please note that attendance at our ceremony is not mandatory.
No diplomas are distributed at our ceremony. Master’s level candidates who complete their program in May receive their diplomas after the university’s official ceremony on Sunday, May 18.
