Commencement Participation and Degree Conferral
Undergraduate candidates who are eligible for graduation receive a notice from the Office of Student Data and Registrar beginning in February. This notice includes instructions as to how students register online to participate in commencement.
Students who participate in commencement will hear their name announced and receive their diploma cover when they walk across the stage.
- Any questions about degree eligibility or participation in commencement should be directed to the Office of Student Data and Registrar, 651-962-6700.
- During the ceremony, Lifetouch will take photos of students as they receive their diploma and as they exit the stage. Students will receive an email from Lifetouch after commencement with a link to view and purchase photos.
Beginning approximately six weeks after commencement, diplomas will be mailed to candidates whose degree requirements are complete and student account is paid in full.
