Commencement Countdown

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.
