Graduate Commencement Information for Faculty
The safety of our community is our highest priority at Georgia State University. Out of an abundance of caution regarding the current coronavirus situation, all 2020 Spring commencement celebrations have been cancelled.
Updates will be posted as they become available. Also, to find the latest information on Georgia State’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, please look for the red “Coronavirus” tab at the top of this page.
Faculty are an important part of this celebration, and we strongly encourage you to participate in our faculty processional.
Registration is required to participate, so please fill out and submit the form at the bottom of this page. The deadline to register for the ceremony is Thursday, April 30.
Faculty participating in Graduate Commencement are required to wear regalia. Faculty members can order regalia by visiting http://colleges.herffjones.com/college/georgiastate/faculty.
On the day of the ceremony, please come dressed in your regalia and as a reminder, please do not bring extra items with you. Note: The College of Education & Human Development is not responsible for any valuables left unattended in the designated holding room or ceremony room.
Faculty (including the platform party) must be checked in to the faculty holding room by 9:30 a.m. Important instructions about the ceremony will be given to faculty in the holding room and we will then begin lining up for the processional.
We kindly ask that all faculty participating in Graduate Commencement please leave their valuables with guests or prepare to take valuables with them during the procession. Our faculty holding room this semester will not be held in a room/space that can be secured. Note: The College of Education & Human Development is not responsible for any valuables left unattended in the designated holding room or ceremony room.
If you arrive after the ceremony has begun, please see an usher stationed at the doors of the ceremony room for seating.
We anticipate the ceremony will last approximately an hour and a half.
