Preparation for Attending Commencement Ceremonies

A Commencement Fair is held every fall and spring semesters to help students prepare for attendance at the ceremony. Students are strongly encouraged to attend the fair.

Candidates attending the University-wide ceremony will be notified by the Commencement Office with details regarding ceremony dates, venues, procedures to order regalia and RSVP opportunities for tickets (if required).

Each college hosts its own convocation to recognize degree candidates and celebrate student achievements.  Information regarding these ceremonies including ticket availability is provided to students by the individual colleges.

Ph.D. candidates attending the ceremony at the Rialto will be notified after the midpoint of the semester of graduation the number of tickets available to them and how they will be distributed.

Official Georgia State University regalia is required for the ceremonies. The regalia is ordered through the Georgia State University Bookstore.

Detailed information regarding the Commencement Ceremonies can be found on the Commencement website.
