You MUST have the following status on your transcript to register via the link/icon on your student portal:

  • Degree awarded (fall 2023 graduate)
    • You may check your status on your unofficial transcript from your “Student Homepage”: Click on the “Academic Records” tile,” then click on “View Transcript” on the left.
  • Candidate (spring or summer 2024 graduate)
    • You may check your status from the “Student Homepage”: Click on the “Academic Records” tile, then click on “Academic Summary” on the left. Your status is displayed under your expected graduation term.

Register your Commencement participation via your student portal by April 24.

In your registration form, you will type and record (in MarchingOrder via your student portal) how you want your name to read on the screen as you cross the stage. This does not affect how your name is printed on your diploma.

Please record your name in the third section of the registration page, via ProNounce. Your recording will be used to properly pronounce your name as you cross the stage. This recording must be completed by April 24, 2024 at midnight.

Your registration will create a unique GradPass QR code that will be used to trigger name announcement as you walk across the stage. You will receive your GradPass QR code at grad lineup the day of your ceremony.

*Please note that during the Commencement ceremonies, last-minute name changes will not be accommodated. The name cards are embedded with a unique barcode that will be used to display the names on the jumbo screen.


Each graduate will receive eight tickets for their ceremony. Tickets are free and cannot be bought or sold. Tickets that are bought or sold will be invalidated by the university.

Warning: Each ticket will have its own unique scanning pattern. Once a ticket has been scanned, it is no longer usable. Duplicate tickets are invalid. An electronic or hard copy of the guest tickets must be presented for entrance into the college graduation ceremony.

Guest tickets will only be available electronically via MarchingOrder.

Accessing tickets – available April 1-24, 2024

Log into your student portal to access MarchingOrder (the process is the same as when you logged in to register) Open your MarchingOrder registration page and scroll all the way down to the bottom to claim your eight tickets. You will then have the option to email or print your guest tickets.

Please make sure you have downloaded or printed your tickets prior to arriving on campus for your ceremony. Wi-Fi bandwidth is low during the week of Commencement ceremonies.

Children over the age of 2 require a ticket.

Extra tickets will not be available. Tickets should not be sold.

Tickets can be transferred to another person via email. Ensure the tickets are for the same ceremony. Each ticket has a unique QR code and can only be used for the ceremony it is assigned.

All ceremonies will be livestreamed. The livestream links will be on the Commencement website one hour prior to the ceremony start time. The recorded ceremonies will remain on the Commencement website through summer 2024 for playback.
