Graduation is the completion of all graduation requirements and official posting of a student’s degree to his/her academic record. Commencement is the ceremony in which students who are eligible to graduate participate. Although AUM has three graduation awarding dates per year (May, August, and December), there are only two commencement ceremonies (May and December).
While degrees are awarded three times during the year (May, August, and December), there are only two formal commencement ceremonies (May and December). The December commencement program includes those students who had graduated during the previous August as well as those students finishing their program in December.
Caps and gowns for Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Education Specialist degrees are in stock at the AUM Bookstore; therefore, you do not have to pre-order. Doctoral degree candidates should contact the bookstore the first month of the semester in which they are graduating to order their regalia. The AUM Bookstore can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and 334-244-3578.
You may order invitations to the commencement ceremony from a vendor through the AUM Bookstore.
Due to a larger than normal graduating class this Spring 2021 and the current health guidelines requiring six foot social distancing, graduates may invite no more than five (5) guests.
For the 10:00 a.m. ceremony, guests should arrive between 9:00-9:40 a.m.. For the 2:00 p.m. ceremony, guests should arrive between 1:00-1:40 p.m.
Candidates are encouraged to wear black clothing under the gown. Comfortable black dress shoes are recommended since you will be doing a lot of walking. The tassel on your mortar board hangs on the right of the cap as you enter the ceremony. During the ceremony when the degrees are conferred, you will move it to the left.
Graduates will receive directions where to go when they enter the Multiplex and will receive further instructions upon check-in. Graduates should arrive wearing their regalia and should not any personal items, such as purses, inside.
If you qualify, academic honor cords and/or military honor cords will be distributed during the pre-ceremony. (Please contact the specific organizations for honorary scholastic cords. If you are receiving a cord from another organization, pick it up from the sponsor in advance of commencement.)
If a graduate has a disability and requires assistance, contact the Registrar’s Office by April 8, 2021 at 334-244-3125 or email email@example.com. While there will not be any preceding seating reservations, there will be staff to assist with guest seating and wheelchair access seating.
The non-refundable graduation fee ($85 for undergraduates and $98 for graduate students) will be posted to your student account. You will be notified by email when the fee has been assessed to your account.
Diplomas will be mailed to graduates the week after commencement to the address provided on the graduation application. Graduates may email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm or change the mailing address.
University regulations require that all degree candidates be enrolled during the term of graduation. If a student fails to graduate in the term for which application is made, the applicant must reapply in a subsequent term. (The graduation fee will not be assessed for reapplication.)
To re-apply, please contact email@example.com.
