The 15th Graduate Programs Commencement Ceremony will be held on
Friday, August 1, 2014 at the Kimmel Center, Broad and Spruce Streets.
Formal Graduation Announcement Cards
The College provides formal announcement cards for graduates to use as
announcements to send to family and friends. Each graduate will receive 25 announcements
and 25 personalized name cards. Graduation announcements will be sent to all
graduates using the address provided.
All family members and guests attending the ceremony MUST have
a Kimmel Center generated admission ticket to enter the ceremony on
Commencement Day. The Office of Academic Affairs is currently looking
into how many initial tickets each graduate will receive. An e-mail will
be sent shortly once we obtain more information from the Kimmel Center
concerning the number of seats. Arrangements to request extra tickets will
take place sometime in June, 2014. At that time, graduates will receive an
e-mail with instructions on how to order extra tickets. Please do not request
extra tickets until you receive this e-mail.
Cap and Gown
The Office of Student Affairs handles the distribution of the
Commencement Package. Graduates will receive an e-mail from the Office of
Student Affairs when the Commencement Package is ready for pick up.
Cap and Gown - Pick up on Commencement Day
If for some reason you cannot pick up your Commencement Package
until the day of graduation, the Office of Student Affairs will
bring your package to the Kimmel Center for you. You will find your
cap and gown in the Lounge after 9:00 am. Tickets for your family and
guests will be available for pick up at the ticket table. Please be sure to
notify Student Affairs by e-mail at Studentaffairs@pcom.edu that you will
pick up your package at the Kimmel Center on Commencement Day. This
will ensure that your tickets are available at the ticket table for your family
