For graduates only
Plan on arriving by 8 a.m. on May 12 to allow for check-in lines.
As your family and friends make their way into the arena, all graduates should head over to the southeast entrance of Sun Devil Stadium. Once checked in proceed to the west tunnel of Desert Financial Arena.
A maroon cap and gown, and tassel are required to participate and can be purchased from any Sun Devil Campus Store.
If you are an on-site student graduating with honors, you can pick up your honor cords at any University Registrar Services location. If you are an ASU Online student, you will receive an email with additional information about honor cords and ceremonies after you apply to graduate.
What you can expect
To participate, you need to RSVP by April 15.
Upon arrival on the morning of the CISA Convocation ceremony, you will check in and receive a personalized card before proceeding to the west tunnel of Desert Financial Arena.
Ushers will guide you to your degree program's seating area on the arena floor.
At the appropriate time during the ceremony, you will be asked to proceed to the stage. There will be a photo taken at the base of the ramp; you will receive your diploma cover and be directed up the ramp to the stage.
As you approach the stage, you will share your card with the person running the scanner at the first podium. When your name is announced, you will cross the stage, stop for a photo with the dean and head of the faculty group in which your degree is based. (There will be no handshakes this year.) You will then exit the stage.
Your diploma will be mailed to your home address on file with the university 8-10 weeks after graduation.
