2021 Virtual Commencement Experience
May 27, 10:00 A.M. (EDT)
Additional information coming soon.
You must file an Application for Degree form with the Registrar’s Office. Only an official notification from the Registrar’s Office should be accepted as a definitive statement of graduation. Receipt of a commencement letter from Student Life does not signify that you have fulfilled all your academic requirements and does not indicate that you are eligible to graduate.
Each graduate will have the opportunity to be recognized with an official slide that can be personalized with your photo and personal message, and which can be downloaded and shared on social media.
All graduates, as listed by the Registrar’s Office, should have received an email in March with instructions and an individualized link to the MarchingOrder site. This email was sent to your Baruch email account. On that site you will be able to upload a photo, write a personal message, and even record how your name is pronounced. Please note the personalization deadlines below:
- Name announcement – Sunday, May 2
- Photo and message personalization – Tuesday, May 11
If you have not received this email, please first check your Baruch email junk mailbox. Otherwise, please email Student Life with the following information:
- First Name
- [Optional] Middle Name
- Last Name
- Baruch Email
- Degree (BBA, MS, etc.)
- School (Marxe, Weissman, Zicklin)
- [Optional] Honors, if any (cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude)
You must include all the information listed above not marked optional. You will then be added to the MarchingOrder site and will receive an email with your individualized link.
Cap and gown are not required for the 2021 Commencement Experience on May 27. However, you may wish to order a cap, gown, hood, and/or tassel to wear for your family celebration or a watch party, or just as a keepsake. You may order by going to our Commencement Order Form. Please note that the deadline to order and have your items shipped directly to you by May 27 is April 30. Orders placed after April 30 may not arrive until after May 27.
Here’s a message from Herff Jones:
To make life easier during this uncertain time, we will be shipping your cap & gown directly to your home.
Your graduation is a reason to celebrate! We encourage you to honor this milestone by making full use of your gown; take pictures, share on social media and celebrate with loved ones.
