Where do I register and check in?

For May graduation details on check in will be announced based on your college's assigned date, time, and location of graduation. Please visit the May Ceremony page for the date, time, and location of your graduation ceremony.
What is the appropriate graduation attire?
All graduates must wear academic regalia (cap and gown). The only substitution for the cap and gown is military dress.
