CBU Commencement

NEXT STEPS FOR GRADUATES PARTICIPATING IN THE CEREMONY IN FALL 2017; SPRING OR SUMMER 2018
  1. COMPLETE THE GRADUATION APPLICATION: You must complete a Graduation Application, which is now located inside of BannerWeb under “Student Services – Student Records – Apply to Graduate”. Degrees cannot be conferred without a Graduation Application and the appropriate approvals. Deadlines for submitting your “Intent to Graduate” application: September 15, 2017, if completing during Fall 2017; December 1, 2017, if completing during Spring 2018 or Summer 2018

  2. COMPLETE THE GRADUATE INFORMATION FORM: If you plan to participate—or are unsure at this time—in the commencement ceremony, you must complete the Graduate Information Form .  It serves as your official regalia rental order form and RSVP for certain commencement-related events.Regalia is provided to you for the ceremony and must be returned at the conclusion. Students will be charged a fee for any regalia not returned.  In addition, members of the Class of 2018 who are considered “legacy” are invited to attend a special dinner in their honor. Complete this form:  www.cbu.edu/gradinfo

  3. COMPLETE ALL POST GRADUATE SURVEYS PRIOR TO THE GRADUATION FAIR: After spring break, please check your CBU e-mail for two e-mailed surveys—one from Curt Rogers in Career Services, the other from Melissa Andrews. BOTH of these surveys must be completed prior to attending the Graduation Fair.  Upon completing the surveys, you will receive a confirmation. You are encouraged to take screenshots as proof the surveys were completed.

  4. ATTEND THE GRADUATION FAIR: If you plan to participate in the commencement ceremony, you must attend the Graduation Fair.  If you’ve completed both surveys above, you will receive your generic announcements and inclement weather tickets.  In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to sit for a cap and gown photo; order a class ring; speak with representatives from campus offices; and more. Tuesday, March 20, 2018 | 12:00-1:30 p.m. or 4:30-6:00 p.m.  | Sabbatini Lounge
