Pronouncer Card

Only the graduate may pick up the pronouncer card. Or a designee. Graduate must email the Commencement Office stating who will pick up materials prior to cap and gown distribution, if the graduate is unavailable during Cap and Gown Distribution.

The "pronouncer card" is printed in the Commencement Office with each student that has completed the Attendance Card and will be available for pick up at Cap and Gown Distribution. If you have done the attendance card and all other parts of the checklist, you will have a seat at the ceremony, and you will have a pronouncer card made for you. 

The card contains a front and back. Front has your name and the back as a portion to fill out for the photographer. HOLD on to your card all day graduation day. Do not destroy or forget the  card. Bring the card with you to graduation. We'll tell you what to do with it during the ceremony.

You should note three points about the pronouncer cards:

  1. You must pick up your pronouncer card When you pick up your cap and gown. Cap and gown will not be issued to a student without a pronouncer card.
  2. You must pick up your pronouncer card prior to the commencement ceremony in order to participate in the exercises. You must  have this card in hand as you go to the stage.
  3. In the event that you lose your card, or you are late in picking up your card, you should go to the Pronouncer card station (located on the event level) on the day of Commencement. The crew member will have the original card or fill out a replacement card for you.
