Faculty Line-Up

Faculty members attending the commencement ceremony should arrive and be ready for the lineup one hour prior to the ceremony start time. The processional line-up will take place in room 105 of the Menard Law building. The processional will proceed as a single file line across parking lot 24 and through the ICCU Arena entrance tunnel into the seating area for faculty. The processional will start approximately a half hour before the ceremony start time. Marshalls will be guiding you and able to answer any questions you may have.


After opening remarks, guest speakers, medallion awards, honorary degrees and recognition of honors, students will approach the stage to receive their diploma cover. Students will have the option to shake hands with their academic deans or president and will be photographed. Doctoral candidates will be hooded by their major professor on stage. Educational specialist and master's candidates will need to arrive to the ceremony wearing their hoods. Faculty are welcome to congratulate their students as they feel comfortable after they receive their diploma cover. Faculty can also help by reminding students to remain through the entire ceremony. The ceremony, not including processional, will last approximately two hours.

We are eager to celebrate the university’s 129th Commencement with you. Call Ryan Watson with Event and Support Services at 208-885-7929 or Graduation Services in the Office of the Registrar at 208-885-4619 or 208-885-1296, or email with questions.
