Commencement is the ceremony which takes place only once per
academic year in June. It allows graduates and their families to
celebrate their achievement. As part of this rite of passage, the
accomplishment and contribution to the DePaul learning community is
recognized. Visit the Commencement website for specific details regarding commencement.
Steps Toward Commencement
Review your personal information for accuracy in Campus Connect. Check your diploma address to ensure that your diploma will be mailed to the correct location. If you need to update your name, please fill out the Personal Information Change Request through the University Registrar.
Students must successfully apply for degree conferral
in order to participate in the ceremony. Anyone without an active
application cannot participate in the commencement ceremony. To apply for degree conferral, select "Apply for Graduation" in the drop down menu under the Student Center tab in Campus Connect.
After you have applied for degree conferral, order your cap and gown from the Herff Jones website. The ordering site will go live during Winter Quarter, and Graduate Student Services will email all eligible students instructions on how to reserve a cap and gown. Follow the cap and gown ordering process all the way through the
Herff Jones website until you receive a confirmation page.
