Commencement

Class of 2020 Commencement Information

Saturday, June 12 at 9:00 AM | UPMC Events Center

You are eligible to participate in these Commencement ceremonies if you earned a bachelor’s or master’s degree in August 2019, December 2019, or May 2020. 

As a result of the decision by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf to lift the capacity limits for indoor events, we will now be holding one Commencement ceremony at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 12, in the UPMC Events Center. This will be for all bachelor’s and master’s degree recipients for the Class of 2020.

All graduates will be able to invite four guests to attend with them. We ask that all guests register in advance using this Eventbrite link, which also includes some basic instructions we ask you and your guests to follow that day. 

Please see this document for complete Commencement instructions, and email commencement@rmu.edu if you have any questions.

The deadline to order regalia is May 21.

We thank you for your continued patience as we plan Commencement for the Class of 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back to campus in June.

Class of 2021 Commencement Information

Class of 2021 Commencement was held on May 6-8.

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.
