Class of '22 Graduation Checklist

2022 grads, make sure you complete all the steps below to receive your degree
and participate in the commencement ceremony.

Do this as soon as possible.

#1. Apply for your degree: If you have not already done this, speak to an advisor immediately.

Applying for your degree is different than opting in to participate in commencement. (See #2 below for more information.) Anyone who graduates during 2022 can participate in this year’s ceremony, but make sure to signify the term you are actually graduating (winter, spring, summer, or fall) in your degree application.

  • Graduate students should apply for their degree using GradWeb by April 8. If you missed the application date, please speak to an advisor immediately.
     
  • Undergraduates must apply for a Spring 2022 degree by April 24 via DuckWeb. If you missed the application date, please speak to an advisor immediately. If you are a Summer 2022 or Fall 2022 degree applicant who wishes to “walk in spring,” apply for your appropriate degree term by May 15.
Do these in May.

 

#2. RSVP to the College of Design Commencement and add your name to the program by May 30.

Make sure your name is in our program the way you want it to appear when the file is available to review. This is required in addition to #1 above, but only for the Class of ’22. Classes of ’20 and ’21 already received print programs when they graduated, so this year’s program will include only the Class of ’22. Digital programs will be available for 2020 and 2021.

#3. Purchase or rent your regalia (cap, gown, tassel, stole, cords) before June 13.

The Duck Store is your one-stop-shop for all commencement gear. Undergrads can purchase caps and gowns any time before Commencement, but beware that they may run out of your size if you wait too long. PhD tams and gowns are custom-made, so you must order them no later than May 6.

Do this on Graduation Day, June 13

#4. Check in at Knight Library South Lawn (Southwest Campus Green Library): June 13, 2–2:30 p.m.

Go to the Knight Library South Lawn by 2:30 p.m. on graduation day in your regalia. Then go to the check-in table inside that’s aligned with the first letter of your last name. Give our volunteers your name to get your name card, which you will hand to staff before you walk across the stage. Commencement volunteers will direct you to the staging area beginning at 3:40 p.m. The ceremony will begin promptly at 4 p.m.
