University-wide Ceremony Requirements to Participate

by Hawkins,Sharon A. last modified Feb 24, 2014 02:34 PM


 To participate in the May 2014 University-wide Ceremony, you must do all of the following:

·        Order a cap and gown.   Order your cap and gown before the deadline Monday, March 31st at midnight.  

·        Attend rehearsal.  All students attending the University-wide ceremony are required to attend rehearsal on Friday evening, May 9, 2014.  See Rehearsal in the left menu.  PhD, EdD, and AuD students attending the SIGS Doctoral Hooding Ceremony do not rehearse prior to the Hooding ceremony.

·         File an approved online application for a May 2014 degree, have graduated in a previous term, or be approved by your academic unit to walk early.  File your application for a degree on ULink. For questions, see Diplomas or call the Registrar's Office 502-852-7325 or 502-852-6522.

  Name listing in the Program Book is generated from the approved degree list.   Name call cards and line-up/seating arrangements are generated from the online cap and gown order list.

If you order a cap and gown and find that you are not eligible to graduate or cannot attend the ceremony, please contact our office BEFORE the March 31st deadline and a credit may be issued.  After the deadline has passed, bachelor and master students must pick-up the apparel from the Red Barn during distribution and use the apparel in a subsequent ceremony. Unfortunately, PhD-AuD-EdD students will not be given a refund for rental apparel after the deadline has passed, nor will apparel be furnished without cost in a subsequent ceremony.

Questions? If you have any questions regarding your eligibility to graduate, contact your school/college advisor or Dean's Office.


Commencement ceremony information will be posted and updated periodically on this web site.
