Congratulations, soon-to-be graduates! As you count down the days to commencement, please take time to make sure you have taken care of your graduation business so you can relax and focus on completing your courses successfully and preparing for commencement weekend.
As a graduate, you are required to attend Commencement Countdown on one of the dates being offered, even if you have placed your order for regalia online.
Countdown is your only opportunity to pick up commencement regalia and tickets. Herff Jones Inc. (the company that provides approved regalia) will be on-site to service you during Countdown. Please note that the commencement chairperson does not have the ability or resources to provide you with caps, gowns, etc.
Countdown will be held in the Cordell Reed Student Union Building in rooms A, B, and C on:
Wednesday, November 20, 2013
