Graduates, your seat at Commencement is reserved when you complete these two actions:

1. Register to participate in the Commencement ceremony

Beginning in February, degree candidates on the graduation list for December 2017, May 2018, and summer 2018 will receive in their myIPFW email accounts a unique link to register for Commencement. Only students on the graduation list will receive Commencement information. If you have not applied for graduation, your department may not have added you to the graduation list.

2. Purchase undergraduate or rent graduate apparel for the ceremony

For best prices on apparel, attend the Graduation Fair. More information on graduate and undergraduate apparel is available at the respective web pages.

Borrowed or previously worn apparel must be approved by the Office of Academic Ceremonies, Kettler 157, by April 25th.
