Protocol for Receiving your Diploma Cover

Due to COVID-19 is it important that Graduates maintain 6ft distancing. So that we may celebrate all graduates, both graduates in attendance and those watching remotely will have their name read. Please stand when your program is called. Walk toward the left side to the stage, up the steps, and stop in until your name is called. When you hear your name, walk across the stage to the President, take your diploma cover with your left hand. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we can not shake hands.   As you receive your diploma cover, pause and smile, as your picture will be taken with the President  Undergraduate graduates, move your tassel from right to left.  All graduates please continue to the other side of the stage and down the stairs. Follow the marshalls and directional tape leading to your second picture before you return to your seat. Copies of these photos can be ordered, please check your Eastern email for details.

Receiving Your Actual Diploma

You will receive a diploma cover at Commencement. If you have completed all requirements, returned all books to the library, and your account is paid in full, your diploma will be mailed to your home address in July. Please submit address changes in writing to the Registrar's Office.
