  • The ceremony is expected to last two hours.
  • All graduates should wear the appropriate academic cap and gown.
  • There will be a 3x5 card and a pencil on your chair at the ceremony. Please write your name as you want it read. If your name is difficult to pronounce, please write it phonetically. This card is handed to the reader at the platform so that the graduate's name may be called.
