How do I register for the fully virtual ceremony?
Please update your registration in the student portal, indicating that you will be attending the virtual ceremony. You will be prompted to upload a photo and thank you note, so that we make sure you are included on a slide in the ceremony.
What is a virtual ceremony?
A virtual ceremony has many of the same components as a live ceremony. In exchange for walking across the stage to accept your diploma, we create a slide with your photo, degree, honor societies and any personalized messages you provide. Please view this short video to see what the experience is like.
What if I don’t want to attend the fully virtual ceremony?
If you do not wish to participate in a virtual ceremony, we invite you and all eligible graduates to attend the in-person ceremony that will be held at a later date.
I already ordered regalia, but I plan on attending the virtual ceremony now. Do I still need it?
If you want to keep your regalia for photos, as a souvenir of your accomplishment (or for virtual viewing parties) you are able to do so, but it is not required. If you plan on also attending the rescheduled in-person ceremony, it is advised to keep your regalia, as it will be needed at that time. Otherwise, Jostens will accept returns for unopened regalia.
When will I receive information on the rescheduled in-person ceremony?
We are working with our vendors and monitoring the unfolding public health situation to determine a new date. Once we have confirmed the date, we will send out an email to eligible graduates for that ceremony.
I already purchased travel and lodging. What should I do?
If you’ve already purchased travel and lodging, please reach out to the issuing companies to see if they will be willing to work with you on cancellations and refunds. Numerous airlines and hotels are waiving cancellation fees at this time. If companies are unwilling to work with you on cancellations, please contact email@example.com.
