Important Information for Graduating Students

All students eligible for the Spring 2021 commencement are invited to participate in the May 2021 commencement ceremony.

Please speak to your academic advisor to see if you qualify for the May 2021 commencement ceremony. All commencement participants must complete a graduation application form. Commencement participation is extended to students who have earned an associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees, and have completed all graduation requirements outlined in the University catalog. If you have questions regarding your degree requirements, please contact your academic advisor.

Graduating students – watch for the email inviting you to register your participation in CCU’s commencement ceremony through the MarchingOrder platform. All participating students, whether attending in-person or virtually, must register. Students are encouraged to complete a graduation slide that can be personalized with a photo and personal message that commemorates their accomplishments as a student at CCU. This graduation slide can be shared with family and friends, and downloaded and shared on social media.

Students who plan to participate in the in-person commencement ceremony in Lakewood on May 8 must order guest tickets for entry into Jeffco Stadium. In consideration of state and local COVID-19 restrictions, four guest tickets per graduating student in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS), and five guest tickets per graduating student in the College of Undergraduate Studies (CUS), can be ordered.

Students who attend the in-person ceremony will have their names announced as they walk across the stage and receive their diploma covers. Students who participate in the virtual commencement ceremony will also have their names announced along with a showing of their personalized graduation slide.

More information on the ceremony can be found at the 2021 Commencement FAQs.
