The Commencement Ceremony Participation form will be available until March 23, 2021.

If you feel that your name may be mispronounced by the reader during the ceremony, please contact Stephanie Wildeman at 812-464-1761.

When you receive your academic regalia, check to make sure you have the gown, mortar board and tassel. Graduate students should also have the appropriate hood. If anything is missing, contact the Campus Store or sm8386@bncollege.com immediately.

Check in for graduates for each ceremony begins in the Screaming Eagles Arena one hour prior to the start of the ceremony . You will receive specific instructions via email from ’USI Commencement’ (commencement@usi.edu) about which door to enter. Also look for posted signage the day of commencement.

Graduates will not process in Spring 2021, but rather will be directed to their physically-distanced seat. Do not bring valuables. Cell phones must be on silent mode for the duration of the ceremony. Please take care of all restroom breaks before being seated.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, graduates will be ushered out of the Screaming Eagles Arena to University Boulevard and asked to return to their vehicles to depart the campus. Due to COVID-19 and the need to physically distance, graduates and guests are asked not to congregate, but rather to depart the building so appropriate cleaning of the Arena can take place for the next ceremony.
