Information for all graduating students

Arrive at the Kresge Oval (tented space in front of the auditorium) at 1:30 pm. You will check-in and be directed to your spot in the procession line. Students will be lined up by department and degree. Plan to only bring things that you can fit in your pocket and be sure to silence any devices you have on you. Keep in mind that timeliness is key to a successful event start! 

PhD students: you will receive your hood on stage as part of the ceremony. Unlike the regalia that you may have chosen to rent, this hood is yours to keep as a symbol of your momentous achievement. 

Masters students: as part of this new tradition of hosting a School ceremony, we have ordered cords for you. Each program has selected a cord color that represents them: red for Architecture, green for ACT, orange for DUSP, and white for MAS. You should arrive wearing your cord over your gown. Cords can be picked up from Jessenia Villa in 7-231 during the following times:
