How to Guide to a Virtual Graduation

Student graduating

Watch this video from Class of 2020 graduating student, Lindsay Ramos, who will tell you what virtual commencement is, and what you can expect on Virtual Commencement day #AUGGRADAtHome.

What you need to know

Graduating students who did not order a cap and gown can still submit a photo for graduation in professional business attire, including the cords. It does not have to be a professional photo, but students should be in cap and gown or professional dress.

Your photo must reflect the decorum of the occasion. The photo should look professional and good quality. Graphics and stylized editing or “filters: are not permitted. If your photo was accepted you will receive an email verifying it was accepted.

There will be a traditional commencement program. These will be mailed to each graduating student so you can follow along with the ceremony.

If you participate in Virtual Commencement, you will still be allowed to participate in December commencement. This is encouraged!

You can find out more on May Virtual Commencement here.
