VIRTUAL GRADUATION CELEBRATION DETAILS:
While the May commencement ceremonies have been postponed, the University remains eager to celebrate this momentous occasion with our graduates. On May 16 2020, UIC will host virtual ceremonies for individual colleges via MarchingOrder.com. The online platform allows graduates to view speeches from administrators and keynotes and to be individually recognized for their accomplishment.
Please know that these virtual events are in no way intended to replace the in-person ceremonies to which we were all looking forward. At the same time, we recognize that it may not be possible for all of our graduates to attend the rescheduled ceremonies. UIC is proud of all of our graduates and their accomplishments, and we invite all spring 2020 graduates to celebrate with us online in May.
Graduates, please watch for an e-mail inviting you to create your personalized slide through MarchingOrder. If you would like your slide to include a reading of your name, you will need to respond no later than April 23. You can still register for a personalized silent slide until May 3. We are unable to take any registrations after May 3. Slides will be used for the virtual ceremonies as well as the rescheduled in-person ceremonies.
The UIC Commencement website provides comprehensive information . Updates will be sent to students via email and posted on the website. Please note that Regalia refunds from the Commencement ceremony are being processed by the UIC Bookstore .
