Each school and division will hold separate ceremonies or receptions at which degree candidates will receive their diplomas individually from their deans.  Please check with your individual school for details regarding their diploma ceremony.   At the College Diploma Ceremony held on the Main Quadrangle at 1:00 p.m., the President will continue the longstanding practice of directly presenting diplomas to each graduate of the College.
