Graduation FAQ

Why is commencement cancelled?
View the official announcement.

Will I receive my diploma or degree?
Our in-person graduation is purely ceremonial and no official diplomas or degrees are distributed at the event. The cancellation of this event will have no effect on graduates receiving their completion documents. Graduates are mailed their diploma or degree upon successful academic and financial completion.

Will there be a virtual ceremony?
Rather than a virtual ceremony we will design a digital yearbook which will create a memento for our graduates and allow faculty, friends, and family to share congratulatory messages. More details on how to take part in the digital yearbook will be shared with all qualified graduates via email.

Can I still celebrate at home?
Of course! We encourage you to celebrate with friends and family at home. Share your graduation photos with us on facebook, instagram or twitter to be featured on our social feed.

How can I order a cap, gown & tassel to celebrate at home?
College, Career & High School graduates can order regalia, class rings and diploma frames directly from Jostens.com. Additional merchandise can be purchased via Teespring
