Graduation and Commencement are NOT the same thing!

Completing an Application for Graduation does not mean you are registered to participate in the ceremony.  If you want to participate in the CEREMONY, you must sign up. If you don't sign up, you will not get tickets and you cannot walk. Eligible grads will receive an email invitation with the link to sign up approximately 6 weeks before commencement.

Graduation refers to actually receiving a degree once a student has been certified by the University as having met all degree requirements. You must complete an Application for Graduation online via WebAdvisor no later than one year prior to the anticipated graduation. If you're not sure you completed an Application for Graduation you must contact the Registrar's Office at 570-662-4201.

Commencement is a ceremony. It is an opportunity for students, families, friends, and the MU community to celebrate their academic accomplishments.

If you did not receive the invitation to participate in graduation, please contact Nancy Parrillo at
