Participation in Commencement

If you plan to participate, you must reserve a seat. You will be contacted via email and will need to fill out the proper participation form. 


Great! Please be sure to bring it with you on the day of Commencement.

NOTE: Starting Jan. 2016, UMSL no longer purchases custom academic attire for full-time faculty. That program no longer has funding. Executive Events will rent attire for those faculty members who do not have their own.

Executive Events will send out a participation form in advance of Commencement. If you have never ordered before, you will need to provide the following information - height, coat size, last degree, and institution where it was earned. The rental will be charged to the University.
