Place: TBD
Tickets: Tickets are not required for admission to the university ceremony.

Receiving Graduation Information

Specific information regarding commencement and attendance at the university ceremony will be emailed to all students approximately one month before graduation. This will direct graduating students to AccessPlus to provide information about attendance at the university ceremony and a diploma mailing address. Ceremony instructions and a graduation checklist will also be posted on the graduation website. If you do not receive this information, please contact the Graduation Office.

Early Walks

If you would like to participate in the University commencement ceremony, but do not graduate during the current term, please contact the University Graduation Office for assistance.

Diploma Distribution

Students who do not plan to attend the university ceremony should stop by the Iowa State Graduation Office to pick up a diploma cover.

Diplomas will be mailed about three weeks following the ceremony to the address that students were asked to provide on AccessPlus. For more information about diploma distribution, contact the Iowa State Graduation Office.

Cording Ceremony

Students involved in the Educator Preparation Program are invited to participate in a cording ceremony. Unique to the School of Education, this is an opportunity to induct teacher candidates into the profession of education. The teacher candidates have their names read, along with their future plans, as someone important in their life places a light blue cord around their neck. All teacher candidates are invited to participate.
