How do I RSVP?
The link to register for ceremonies can be found on your myASU page under the graduation tab and the deadline to register is Wednesday, April 21. After you file your graduation application and pay the fee, you must RSVP by April 21 in order to participate in spring 2021 ceremonies. The RSVP form will allow graduates to upload a personal photo and a brief personal message to be used in your virtual ceremony slides. Once you register for ceremonies, you will also be able to record and upload a personal "Thank You" clip to be included with your ceremony recognition from StageClip. Please note, this is a professional ceremony therefore any photos or messages with inappropriate content will not be approved.
Will in-person events be offered?
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will not be able to offer an in-person graduation ceremony this spring. However, in addition to the virtual ceremonies, The College will be hosting small in-person meet and greet style gatherings for graduating students only during the week of May 3. Once you complete your RSVP for The College Convocation, you will receive an email with more information about the in-person celebration and the opportunity to register.
How will I receive my diploma?
If your university academic requirements are met, similar to prior years, you will receive your diploma in the mail. Diplomas are mailed approximately eight weeks after the degree conferral date. Graduates will receive an email notification via their ASU email account when their diploma has been mailed. Diplomas are mailed to the student's diploma mailing address, which can be viewed and updated from My ASU. For more information, visit https://students.asu.edu/diploma.
Can I still purchase a cap and gown?
Yes! For information about purchasing graduation regalia, visit the Herff Jones website. You will be able to order your cap and gown online or purchase them directly from the bookstore on all four campuses.
Can I still have my cap and gown portraits taken?
Yes! Grad Images will be taking complimentary photos at each of ASU's campuses. For more information about photo dates, locations and links to register, visit https://graduation.asu.edu/ceremonies/memories.
How do I get my honor cords?
If you are an undergraduate student who is eligible for academic honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude) you can review information about honor cords by visiting https://students.asu.edu/graduation-ceremonies and the university will mail your cords to you.
How can I get a diploma cover case?
