Luke AFB Graduation
Congratulations! Webster University Graduating Class of 2016! As we approach graduation you need to be attentive to several DUE DATES and directions you will need to follow.
2016 COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY
At Club Five Six on Saturday, May 21, 2016
SUBMIT A PETITION TO GRADUATE:
Students completing their degree must fill out an online Petition to Graduate prior to graduation, at the time of registration for your final term. The main campus will not confer your degree or release your diploma until this form has been received. You may access the petition using the following link below:
Graduates will need to be at Club Five Six by 8 am in order to have group photos taken and line up for the ceremony. Rolls and coffee will be provided for the graduates.
Faculty need to arrive EARLY ENOUGH in order to be in full regalia for a photo at 9 am.
We will have light refreshments for you that morning in case you do not get a chance to eat or drink anything (e.g., coffee, juice, and muffins).
Be sure to press your gown and hood so they look nice and neat in the class pictures. To order your Master's cap and gown, visit this site: http://colleges.herffjones.com/college/webster. Deadline to order is April 25, 2016.
Do not forget to wear your tassel on the right of your cap. After your degree is conferred you will then move your tassel to the left of your cap. Also, it is best to wear dark trousers or hose and dark shoes with the gown for the class picture. Men usually wear a shirt and tie (no jacket) under the gown and women wear a dress. You want the presentation to look nice for the pictures and you want to be comfortable because it will probably be a very warm day.
There will be an area set aside for you to put on your cap and gown and we will line you up for the processional in alphabetical order. Please be sure to bring your hoods (do not wear them) as you will be hooded on stage.
WITHOUT FULL REGALIA, NEITHER STUDENTS NOR FACULTY WILL BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCEEDINGS.Grad Images Photography will be taking graduation pictures on a no-cost, no-obligation basis. They will take shots of each of you being hooded, receiving your certificate, and receiving honors (if applicable). Individual pictures can be taken before graduation from 8:00–8:30 am in the Ballroom. The class picture will be at 8:30 am sharp in the Ballroom. The faculty picture will be at 9 am in the same place.Individual and family pictures will continue to be taken after the graduation ceremony from 11 am–noon. After graduation, proofs of all your photos will be available to you on the Grad Images website. They will also email you your proofs with different pricing packages as long as you make sure you give your email address.
