Information for Graduates:

Graduation Regalia

Graduates' regalia(cap and grown) must be ordered by April 15th and will be sent to their shipping address.  The web link available for students to order is HERE.   

Graduates will have the option to bring their regalia the day before to Senior Celebration and store it for graduation if they would like. Completely optionally, but one less thing you have to worry about on Saturday morning.

Stoles can be picked up the week before graduation from the Welcome Window in room W104.

Ticket Information

All graduates will initially be given eight tickets. If graduates need more than eight tickets, please visit the following LINK to request more tickets. Students will be able to request an additional eight tickets. If students still need additional tickets, please contact Dean of Students Andre Allen at aallen@methodistcol.edu directly. Tickets will be available for pick up beginning May 7 at the Student Services Window.

If students would like to nominate themselves or someone else be the Student Speaker at commencement, please submit the nomination HERE. Nominations for the Student Speaker will close April 13th at 4:30 pm. Once nominations close, the Dean of Students will contact those nominated directly to see if they wish to stay in consideration to speak and if so, they will need to prepare a speech that our committee will review and decide who will be the official Student Speaker at graduation. The goal is to have the student speaker selected and notified and selected by May 1.
