2020 Commencement FAQ

Will the graduate and professional degree ceremony include hooding of graduates?

To maintain social distancing, there will be no hooding ceremonies. Graduates may not approach the platform party to shake hands or otherwise receive congratulations. If there are materials for graduates to receive, they will pick up items from a table.

Can I change which ceremony I RSVP’d for?
Your registration is final and cannot be changed.

I have RSVP’d, but I can’t remember the details. How do I find out?
When you submitted your RSVP form, you received an email in your MU (UM) email account from the MU Provost confirming your reservation. If it’s not in your inbox, please check your junk/spam and trash folders.

Graduate degree recipients will receive information from the Grad School. Undergraduate participants will receive an email from the University Registrar with last-minute reminders the week of the ceremonies.
