Graduating seniors receive a card indicating their alignment area for Phase I, and the venue where they will be attending their department ceremony during Phase II. The university asks that graduating students be respectful of the solemnity of this occasion and refrain from using cell phones and beepers during the ceremony.
Seniors may pick up their marching cards at Dowling Hall from Thursday, May 16, through Friday, May 17. Before a marching card can be obtained, a student survey must be electronically completed via the web and a Tufts I.D. must be presented. You will receive an email from the Office of Institutional Research during the week of April 22nd with instructions and a unique link to access the survey.
Seniors who have borrowed through federal or institutional loan programs must complete an exit interview before receiving their marching order card. For more information, please see financial aid.
Seniors must pay any outstanding balance on their student account before receiving their marching card.
Marching cards will be stamped with the appropriate honors information for graduating seniors on Friday, May 17, from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in Dowling Hall.
Graduate students may pick up their marching cards at the Student Services desk in Dowling Hall on May 14 and 15 from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
If you are to be awarded latin or thesis honors and wish recognition of that fact at Commencement, you must bring your marching card with your name printed on it to Dowling Hall during the hours specified above. This card will enable the Commencement marshal to read your name to the audience as well as the honors you have received. Only stamped honors information will be read.
