Commencement Kickoff Event

(DePaul University/Jeff Carrion)
DePaul’s Commencement Kickoff Events take place two weeks before commencement. A full schedule with dates, times and locations is listed below.

At Commencement Kickoff you will receive important information needed for commencement day. Most importantly this is when students pick up their commencement tickets and their cap and gown.

Many important university partners will also be available to ensure you have everything you need for your ceremony, including Alumni Relations, Career Services and representatives from each college. GradImages will also be on-site during pickup to allow graduates to take pictures in their cap and gown.

If you are unable to attend to the Commencement Kickoff Event, you can send a friend or a family member on your behalf. Your friend or family member will need to know your DePaul ID number in order to pick up your commencement items.
