Due to the pandemic, the August 8 Commencement ceremony will be conducted virtually, and will be broadcast at noon that day on Facebook and YouTube. Although this clearly was not anyone's first choice, this decision was dependent on numerous factors, particuarly the recent travel restrictions imposed this summer on individuals coming to New York from dozens of other states, as well as the state's restrictions on gatherings of more than 50 people.
All graduates should have received a special package of materials to help celebrate from their location. Packages were sent via USPS Priority Mail on July 31. If you didn't receive yours, please contact Kelly Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each package contained:
One of our favorite traditions is welcoming two young alumnae and alumni back each year to assist graduates with their hood as they prepare to walk across the stage. Since this year's Commencement ceremony is entirely virtual, we encourage graduates to have a family member help out, if possible.
We know that putting them on can be tricky -- so if you need help, download these handy instructions!
We would love to gather photos of you all in your full regalia. Please post to social media with the hashtag #WellsGrads2020 or send via email to email@example.com.
The Registrar's office staff communicates throughout the year with students eligible to graduate regarding degree requirements. All requirements must be fulfilled to receive a diploma during the ceremony. Contact the Registrar's office with any questions: 315.364.3215, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student accounts must be paid in full in order to receive a diploma during the Commencement ceremony. Transcripts are also held until full payment is made. As a reminder students may check their account balance on the Globe.
All seniors wear the traditional black gown, black cap, and black tassel to the ceremony. Wells is one of the few colleges that still awards undergraduate hoods during the ceremony. The hood is included in the academic regalia, which is being mailed to all graduates via USPS Priority Mail; students should receive their packages a few days prior to the ceremony.
Information regarding class rings is available on the Jostens website. Prices vary.
