Frequently Asked Questions
Where Do I RSVP For The Ceremonies And Reception?
All graduates MUST RSVP for the graduation ceremonies on the TICKET REQUEST site. Site will open March 2019 for requests.
How Do I Order My Cap And Gown?
Graduates are required to wear academic regalia (cap, gown, and hood) to participate in the College of Education Graduation Ceremony. Visit the bookstore’s website to order.
Please be sure to purchase the appropriate regalia. The regalia are specific to the degree the student is receiving, not to the school or college he or she has attended.
Will I Receive A Yearbook?
All undergraduate students who are graduating are entitled to receive a yearbook. Yearbooks are published once a year in May. You will receive a FREE copy of the year book during ticket pickup in April.
Questions about the yearbook? Please contact the Templar Yearbook staff at 215-204-7299 or email@example.com.
When Will I Receive My Diploma?
Diplomas will be mailed to the address listed on the graduation application within 6 to 8 weeks of graduation to all academically cleared students. Diplomas will not be released to students who owe the University money or library books, to those who have not completed exit paperwork if required, or to those who have “financial holds.” Students should resolve such matters prior to graduation and contact the School in order to receive their diplomas on time. Address information should be updated with the School and in Banner if graduates expect a change before graduation.
Diploma frames can be ordered through the University Bookstore.
At the ceremony, each graduate is recognized individually by the Dean as he or she is called on stage. A professional photographer from Legacy Photographics (www.legacyphoto.com) will be present to record this important moment in the graduate’s life.
The photographer will mail a complimentary proof directly to the address provided on the graduation application with information about purchasing additional prints.
