Details about how to order regalia will be sent to your Cambridge College email in April, and a packet of information and invitations will be mailed to your home address in April. Military personnel are encouraged to process in their military uniforms if they wish. Regalia will NOT be available at the ceremony, so please be aware of ordering deadlines, which will be posted when available.

Check-in cards

The graduation packet (to be mailed in April) will include a blue index card with your name and address. If you submit your June Intent to Graduate form after the first batch of packets is mailed, you may pick up a card when you check in at the ceremony. Bring this card to the ceremony because this is what you will hand to the person who will read your name as you walk across the stage. It will be collected by the company that takes your photo (see paragraph below) to assist with identifying photos. Please feel free to make adjustments, though be aware that this information will never reach the College. Please contact the Registrar’s Office directly for any changes of address.

Restricted Items at Commencement

The management of the Leader Bank Pavilion has implemented a new policy this year. They will not allow any signs, flags, or banners of any size. The Public Safety team at the Pavilion will confiscate any such items.
