Commencement Pickup Event

DePaul's Commencement Pickup Events takes place during the two weeks before June ​commencement. A full schedule with dates, times and locations will be available in Winter Quarter 2023.

Students coming to campus for Commencement Pickup should follow all on-campus COVID safety guidelines​

Commencement Pickup is when you pick up your guest tickets, reader card, and cap and gown (unless you selected Ship to Home). 

The Commencement Pickup Event is held over several days, and by college, to accommodate the number of graduates. You must attend the day/time for YOUR college because your tickets, reader card and regalia will only be available at that campus.  Attending both days is not necessary. Graduates should anticipate being at the event for about 30 minutes. 

Many university partners will be available to ensure you have everything you need for your ceremony:

  • Alumni Relations
  • Career Services 
  • College representatives
  • Grad Images will be on site to allow graduates to take pictures in their cap and gown. 

If you are unable to attend Commencement Pickup, you may send someone on your behalf to pick up your items. Your representative will need an email or letter from you giving permission, along with the following: your DPU ID number, your email or phone number, your college and major information. ​

Please email with questions regarding the Commencement Pickup Event.
