Confirm Degree Address

To protect the health of our community, the University System of Georgia (USG) has directed that all USG institutions will not conduct graduation ceremonies this spring. Students will still earn their degrees and be able to graduate this semester, consistent with academic standards. Diplomas will mail out four to six weeks after end of term.

Students may confirm their diploma mailing address in Marching Order through April 10.

Spring 2020 Ticketing Policy

Bachelor students who submitted an RSVP during the designated RSVP period will be issued five guest tickets. 

  • Children under the age of two who can sit on a parent's lap for the ceremony do not need a ticket.
  • Tickets are only valid for their listed ceremony; e.g. morning ceremony tickets cannot be used for the afternoon ceremony.
  • Late RSVPs will receive a reduced amount of tickets.

Current students, faculty, and staff wishing to attend the event as a guest may show their buzzcard at will call the day of the event to receive 1 guest ticket.

  • Day-of tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • These tickets may not be reserved in advance.

No tickets are required for guests to attend the Ph.D. ceremony or the Master's ceremony. An RSVP is still required to participate.
