Please register for Convocation even if you have not yet received confirmation of your eligibility to graduate or if you do not wish to attend the ceremony.
To begin the process, please register and provide the information listed below, by logging onto the Memorial Self-Service website.
On Memorial Self-Servicep please indicate:
- whether you will or will not be attending Convocation;
- the number of guest tickets you will require. Guest seating will be limited because of the size of the auditorium. All students receive their own seating pass and may request up to THREE guest tickets.
- if you wish to request additional guest tickets (maximum TWO). If guest tickets are available after all graduating student allotments have been made, the requests for additional tickets will be processed.
- Academic dress is ordered through a link on Memorial Self Service to Gaspard Ltd. This company will collect your information and have your academic dress pre-packaged and waiting for you at the Pepsi Studio, one hour before your ceremony.
Note: The information you provide to Gaspard Ltd. can be changed or updated anytime before the deadline.
You must reply by Wednesday, April 16 by 5:00 p.m. in order to receive your allotment of guest tickets, even if you have not yet been approved to graduate. If we do not receive your information by this date, we cannot guarantee that tickets will be available for your guests. The cost of academic dress ordered before the registration deadline, is eligible for a discounted fee of $35. After the deadline academic dress is $50 cash; this will be paid when picking up your academic dress.
Please note that no tickets will be issued through the Memorial Self-Service Web site to students who have outstanding financial or academic restrictions. If you are in this situation, please call (709) 637-6206.
