The Difference Between Participating in Commencement and Graduating

It is important that candidates and families understand the difference between "participating in commencement [walking across the stage]" and "graduating [receiving a diploma]".

Please visit the Candidate Instructions page for details.


Your Name at Commencement

While applying for graduation, you may have noticed that your name needs to be updated in the University database. For example, adding your full middle name instead of just a middle initial.

In order to change your name with the University, you must submit a Personal Information Update Request with the Registrar's Office.

This name change will affect your diploma, the commencement program, your name Reader Card, and all other university documents.


Candidates and Guests with Disabilities

Reasonable accommodations for candidates with disabilities will be provided upon request. If you know you will need accommodations on commencement day, please contact your Academic Advising Center (Undergraduate) or The Graduate College (Graduate students) at least two weeks prior to the ceremony.

Accommodations for guests with disabilities include accessible parking, shuttle services, accessible seating, and sign language interpreting services. For more information on parking and seating for individuals with limited mobility, see here.

For additional information regarding accommodations for persons with disabilities, please visit the Office of Disability Services (ODS) website or call the ODS at 512-245-3451.
