3. Virtual Graduation Website

A special online graduation platform celebrates our graduates and includes messages from our speakers, graduate profiles, graduating student award winners, and a degree presentation. Participation is optional.

Everyone is welcomed to post congratulatory messages on the graduate profile pages. Graduates can be found via degree or a name search. Please share your words of wisdom and let our graduates know how proud you are of their accomplishments!

How to Participate: Students completing their degree in August 2019, December 2019 or prospective graduates for May 2020 or Aug 2020 will receive an email from the Student Services Coordinator, with instructions on how to create and submit a graduate profile to the online graduation platform.

Important: Be sure to click “Submit” once you have saved your profile. A confirmation message will be received once a profile has been submitted to the system. If you “Save” but do not “Submit,” the profile will not be registered.

Questions: For troubleshooting your profile submission, contact iSchool Tech Support.
