Phased Registration

To help us plan a safe event, there is a two-phase registration process.


OPENS FEBRUARY 17, CLOSES MARCH 3: Phase 1 will tell us how many alumni are intending on participating and will help us schedule enough ceremonies to safely accommodate everyone. 

  • February 17-18, alumni are sent an email with the subject line “IMPORTANT: Save your seats for in-person Convocation May 2022” from the email address
  • In the email, alumni are asked to fill out the “Save My Seat” form to guarantee the opportunty to officially register for their May ceremony.

The ceremony dates and times will be determined by responses in Phase 1 and will be shared in Phase 2. 


OPENS THE WEEK OF MARCH 7, CLOSES APRIL 6: Everyone who responded in Phase 1 will receive their official ceremony invitation via email the week of March 7, 2022. This email will include:

  • The date and time for their specific ceremony
  • A customized link to register themselves and up to two guests

Seats are guaranteed if the alumnus registers before March 21, 2022. After this date, if seats are still available, registration will be open to all graduates until April 6, 2022.
