No, graduating studens do not need to register for the SSW Convocation Ceremony. We have internal behind-the-scenes processes that allow us to be prepared for every graduating student to participate in the ceremony (although participation is not required). See you there!
If you have marked your name, major, attendance or degree as Confidential on the Directory Options in SURFS, your name will not appear in any campus Commencement publications. If that’s not what you want, you need to change the settings before April 30.
We can’t verify your attendance or graduation for future employers without your written consent if your name, major, attendance or degree are marked confidential.
To change confidentiality settings for directory information, logon to Surfs and go to the Personal Information menu and click on Update Directory Options
