To participate in the academic procession and the Commencement Ceremony, you must:

  • Wear your cap, gown, hood and tassel and professional attire.
  • Refrain from wearing large, conspicuous jewelry.
  • Wear comfortable shoes (black), as walking briskly in the procession can be difficult.
  • Leave your personal belongings with one of your guests.


    When you assemble for the procession, you will receive a card with your name and degree. During the ceremony, designated readers will be at two podiums on stage. You will follow the Marshals to the podium, hand your name card to the reader, and then proceed to the middle of the stage. If you have an unusual pronunciation to your name, you may write it phonetically on your card and make sure you let them know so your name can be pronounced correctly. You will receive your diploma case and congratulations from the Chairperson of the Board or the Marygrove College President.



    A professional photographer will take a picture of each graduate as they receive their diploma. Information on purchasing these photographs will be available at the Commencement Ceremony.

    Guests may photograph/videotape in designated areas only.



    During the ceremony, you will receive your diploma case.  If you have satisfied your financial obligations to the College, your diploma will be mailed to your address of record within 4-6 weeks following the Commencement Ceremony. If you do not receive your diploma within that time frame, please call the Registrar's Office at (313) 927-1238.


    Any candidate with an outstanding balance will be able to participate (walk) in the Commencement Ceremony. All outstanding balances must be paid by Friday, April 18, 2014 or your diploma and official transcripts will be withheld until all outstanding balances are paid.
