The Commencement Pickup event is held over several days, and by college, to accommodate the number of graduates. You must attend the day and time for your college because your reader card, tickets, and regalia will only be available at that campus.  Attending both days is not necessary. Graduates should anticipate being at the event for about 30-45 minutes.

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

  • College representatives
  • Alumni Relations
  • Career Services 
  • DePaul University Bookstore, to purchase diploma covers, alumni gear and more​!
  • GradImages, to allow graduates to take pictures in their regalia. 

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 DePaul ID number, your email or phone number, your college and major information. ​
