Academic attire is provided by the college and consists of a knee-length gown (no cap/mortarboard).

Personal items
Flowers, purses, cameras and other personal items should be left with a friend or family member. If this is not possible, a place is available in the gowning area to check such items.

Ceremony length
The ceremony lasts approximately 1.5 - 2 hours. The ceremony will be streamed live on the internet for those unable to attend.

Guests or graduates with disabilities
Graduates may indicate requirements related to mobility, deaf or hard-of hearing, blind or low vision, or other concerns when registering through the Student Portal.

Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage you to limit your guests to two, to avoid overcrowding.

Documents are mailed to students who have met the requirements to graduate at the fall ceremonies. Documents are distributed to students at spring ceremonies. If you are unable to attend your spring ceremony and have not previously received your document, it will be mailed to your default address following Convocation.
