Name Announcement Cards
This card designates your place in line for the procession into the coliseum, provides your name to the announcer for individual recognition as you walk across the stage, and provides your name and mailing address to the Registrar's Office (for mailing of your diploma) and the photographer (for mailing of photo proofs).
Please be sure that the information on the front AND back of your Name Announcement Card is accurate.
Candidates must pick up their Name Announcement Cards before their ceremony. Representatives from the Registrar's Office will be in Brown Hall in front of the Registrar's Office Friday, May 6, from 9 AM to 5 PM distributing Name Announcement Cards. If circumstances prevent you from picking up your card on Friday, you will need to arrive at least one hour prior to your ceremony start time to pick yours up in the Coliseum Ticket Office (bring your Tech ID/drivers license); Name Announcement Cards are required for participation in the ceremony.
On the front of your Name Announcement Card you will find your Line number and position in line, which will guide you for line-up before the ceremony. Personnel from the Registrar's Office will be located throughout the Coliseum to provide assistance and direction.
During the Ceremony
When your row is called, you will proceed in line with your Name Announcement Card and present it to the Dean of your college at the podium. As you walk across the walkway to receive your diploma cover (diplomas will be available for pickup with walk cards the day before graduation in Brown Hall in front of the Registrar's Office or immediately preceding the ceremony in front of the ticket booth in Tucker Coliseum with a photo id; diplomas not picked up will be mailed approximately 6-8 weeks after graduation), your Dean will call your name exactly as it appears on your Name Announcement Card.
