I can’t attend the Graduation Fair, how do I get information about Commencement and the fair vendors?

The Graduation Fair serves as an event where students can have most of their graduation and commencement needs met all in one place. If students cannot attend, they will be able to find information about Commencement and general information on the Graduation webpages. Please visit the following pages:

Latin Honors (cum, magna, or summa) Cords are available during the Graduation Fair.
