Commencement Countdown


Graduates, the deadline for submitting videos and other profile content (May 13) has passed. Any revisions requested after that date will be made after Commencement.

Uploading Content to Your Graduate Profile

Your profile page on the Commencement site can serve as a great professional presence for you and a source of pride. You can include a headshot; three images, three audio files and three videos of your work; and links to your website, work on the web or your social media accounts.

In order to ensure all material is visible in time for the ceremony, submit anything you’d like to add to your profile by May 9. Your name video (see below) is now due May 9.

Your Name Video

Deadline: May 9

Upload a video of yourself saying your name, to be played during Commencement!

Nothing is more special than the moment your name is called and you step forward to receive your degree. This year, each of you will be able to create a video up to seven seconds long to introduce yourself as a graduate during the ceremony and the traditional conferral of degrees.

Fill out this form to submit your video for the reading of the names. Make sure you're signed into your email address.

Videos must be seven seconds or fewer. Longer videos will be trimmed.


  • Say your full, chosen name.
  • Feel free to get creative and/or add family members to your video.
  • Cheering, waving, confetti or any other celebratory moments are encouraged!

Cap and Gown
If you haven’t yet received them, your cap, gown and any honor cords you’ve earned should arrive in the coming weeks. Use them to express yourself in your video and on May 16!

Further details will be sent to your email address. Be sure to check your account regularly.
