+How are we lined up for the ceremony?
Graduates will line up according to program. Degree and certificate recipients line-up separately. If a graduate is receiving a degree and a certificate or two degrees and/or certificates, they are to line up with the first-degree program alphabetically. Upon presentation of the graduates, all programs are announced.
+What about my guests?
There is no limit to the number of guests you may bring to the ceremony as seating is on a first come, first serve basis. Guests should proceed directly to the courtyard via main entrances or proceed toward the Library and bear right. Printed invitations are complimentary and available at the Information Desk beginning the third week in April but are not necessary for attendance. We recommend that you ask one of your guests to hold any items you do not want to worry about during the ceremony such as a purse or jacket.
+Where and when do I get my cap and gown?
Graduates can pick up their cap and gown at the Tunxis Bookstore beginning in May (measurements are not necessary). There is no fee. For Bookstore hours, call 860.255.3454.
+What about photographs?
Tunxis has arranged with Island Photography to take a picture of each graduating student on stage as he or she is handed their diploma cover and/or as they exit the stage. Proof(s) will be e/mailed. There is no obligation to order and proof(s) are yours to keep. For safety precautions, we ask family and friends not to stand in aisles to take pictures during commencement exercises. Aisles will be monitored.
+When will I receive my diploma?
At the ceremony, graduates receive a diploma cover. Diplomas may be available immediately following commencement exercises; please listen for an announcement. Graduates may also pick-up their diplomas at the Records Office during regular business hours. Please bring a form of identification with you. Diplomas are not mailed, they must be picked up.
For more information, contact the Records Office (Registrar) during regular business hours at 860.773.1440
