If I participate in virtual commencement, can I still participate in a later in-person commencement?

Yes. The University will be making decisions about the possibilities for in-person commencements later this summer.

Will I be receiving a diploma or tassel for graduation?

In the spirit of a traditional commencement, we will be sending you a tassel and diploma cover. Please confirm your mailing address to ensure we send it to where you are residing now. Duluth students do not need to complete this form - you will be contacted by the Duluth Campus directly.
