The Commencement Fair is your opportunity to make sure you're ready for the May ceremonies. Apply for graduation and check how your name will appear in the ceremony program. Learn about applying to be a student speaker at your ceremony. You can also rent your cap and gown, purchase class rings and design your graduation announcements.
We know you're busy, and you may not be on campus. That's why graduates have two options for attending the Commencement Fair. Both formats offer the same resources and vendors, so we'll see you whenever it works best for you.
