Commencement Program Information

You have the opportunity to view your name as it will be printed in the 96th Commencement Program. To ensure your name appears correctly, you will be sent an email for review which will allow you to make any corrections.  If you do not want your name printed in the program, please email commencement@rmu.edu.

The deadline for review and submissions ends Wednesday, April 14th. 

All diplomas are mailed by our diploma manufacturer directly to your home, so you will receive it even if you are unable to attend a commencement ceremony.

Diplomas will be mailed to your permanent address that you provided in Sentry. It is highly important to change your address before the end of the semester if you plan to move after graduating. You are permitted to change your address to another like a relative or your place of business, not to RMU to pick up.
