Fall Commencement Ceremonies

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR GRADUATION.  

THE FALL 2020 CEREMONIES WILL BE VIRTUAL. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE INFORMATION.

Graduates from Spring, Summer, and Fall 2020 will be invited to participate in the next in-person ceremonies.

We have partnered with Marching Order to create your virtual graduation experience for fall 2020.  All summer and fall graduates will be invited to create a personalized slide for the fall ceremonies.  You can submit a photo and personal message to be included with your slide.

Caps and gowns are not required for your photo submission, but they are available for purchase from the UIC Bookstore website,  uicbookstore.org.

Items ordered from the UIC Bookstore website will be available for in-store pick-up Monday–Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., curbside pick-up Monday–Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., or orders can be shipped via UPS ground for $9.95 until December 7. Most items are in stock now.  Regalia for JMLS graduates will be available no later than November 16.

Photo submissions do not require caps and gowns.  You are still welcome to submit a photo.

Graduates will soon receive an email with a link to register through Marching Order.  The deadline to submit a photo and personal message will be Sunday, November 29.

PREFERRED FIRST NAMES:  The slides are created using your full legal name.  If you have a preferred first name you would like to be used instead, please email commencement@uic.edu and we will be happy to make this change for you.  Your preferred first name must be on file with the university.  The deadline to request the name change is Monday, November 8.  You will still have until November 29 to upload a photo and message.
