Commencement 2017 General Information

FROM: The Office of Academic Affairs

Graduates of 2017

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your upcoming graduation! Here at Robert Morris University, Commencement is our biggest day of the year - a true celebration that you will remember the rest of your life.

You have begun a process that involves several important steps that are outlined on this page. Please read the following website thoroughly and ensure that you complete each step by the respective deadlines.

First, you should have completed your graduation application by the deadline date of January 23 - nothing happens until this form is submitted to Academic Services.

Step 1

Complete your graduation application no later than January 23.

, you should complete the online Josten's order form to specify your cap and gown size, announcements, and shipping instructions.

Step 2

Order and pay for your regalia by March 28 and have your packet shipped home.
After March 28

Josten's cannot guarantee delivery of your regalia. Also, you will be assessed a $20 late fee.

Third, attend Senior Salute, a special two-day event just for graduates. On March 27 & 28, from 11am until 7pm, you can stop by the Nicholson Student Center rotunda and confirm that your graduation application is in order, review your diploma information, visit with several organizations that are there just for seniors, and maybe purchase a class ring. Senior Salute is the official beginning of the graduation festivities.

Academic Services stands ready to make your graduation day one of the most memorable days of your life. But YOU must do your part. Stop by our office in Patrick Henry 200 or call us at 412-397-6230 if you have any questions. But, please do so before the set deadlines that you see above. We look forward to seeing you at Commencement.
