College of Health and Human Sciences Ceremonial Walk Across the Oval for Spring 2021
Anticipated Graduate Term
All 2021 fall graduates are invited to be a part of the Commencement Ceremony – date TBD
IMPORTANT: Students, you are responsible for setting the correct Anticipated Graduation Term, email, and mailing address in RAMweb.
Names in the Program
The Registrar’s Office provides the names for the program and on your CSU official diploma, based on the information you input in the Anticipated Graduation Term you designate on RAMweb. So be sure to keep your information current and accurate!
All fall 2021 graduates will be recognized. If you have a confidential hold on your records, or an Anticipated Graduation Term of another semester, we can’t include you in the program. If you are a walk-through student, we can only include you in the program for your Anticipated Graduation Term. For questions about your Anticipated Graduation Term, please contact your adviser.
More information coming soon!
All 2021 Health and Human Sciences graduating seniors and graduate students are invited to be individually recognized at the Ceremonial Walk Across the Oval on April 6. Individual names will be announced, and diploma covers presented. During the walk, photographers from GradImages will be on site to take pictures as you receive your diploma cover. A formal graduation photo opportunity will also be offered.
Regalia (Caps and Gowns), Attire, and Dress Code
Students are encouraged to wear a graduation gown and graduation cap. However, wearing regalia is not required at this celebration. While the deadline to order from Jostens has passed to ensure your regalia arrives in time for the Walk using regular shipping, Jostens ordering is still open for you to purchase your regalia with expedited delivery. Please work directly with our partners at Jostens.
Face coverings (which must follow county guidance and cover your nose and mouth) are required for all attendees, and must be worn both indoor and outdoor on CSU’s campus. Regalia is encouraged, but not required at this celebration. As part of the CSU ceremonial dress code, students are asked to wear proper attire including shoes, shirts and bottoms at all times. Attire that is not appropriate for the event includes (but is not limited to): Costumes and masks that conceal your identity, clothing with obscene language or graphics, clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment. Clothing with multiple layers will be subject to search. This is an important and momentous day for thousands of students. In the Rams spirit, we also ask students to use discretion and good judgment so that all participants can have a meaningful experience.
Types of Regalia
Undergraduate robes are black (CHHS tassel color is maroon), and cum laude graduates wear gold robes. Students graduating with distinction (cum laude, etc.) will receive an email notification from the Registrar’s Office mid-semester indicating this status. For questions about graduating with distinction, please contact the Registrar’s Office. University Honors Scholars wear green robes and a black stole.
Honorary society cords are considered part of the regalia and are provided by each honorary society.
