All graduating students will receive an email to their UNC Charlotte email account with detailed ceremony information once a date has been determined.
When will the University make a decision on the rescheduled ceremony date?
The University is exploring in-person ceremony options for December that will comply with state guidelines while ensuring the health and safety of our graduates and their guests. We expect to finalize plans by the end of September. Please monitor your UNC Charlotte email and the commencement website for updates.
When and how will I receive my cap and gown?
Caps and gowns are available for Spring 2020 graduates through Oak Hall until June 15. Please use your UNC Charlotte email address to place your order. If you are graduating with Latin Honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, Summa Cum Laude) you may purchase your cords through Oak Hall.
May I still receive my cap and gown if I do not participate in commencement?
All graduating students are eligible to receive a cap and gown.
How many e-tickets will I be able to reserve once e-ticket distribution is rescheduled?
The number of e-tickets each graduating student may reserve will be determined based on the number of graduates. The number of e-tickets will be available five weeks prior to the scheduled ceremony.
If I am unable to attend the rescheduled ceremony, can I attend a future UNC Charlotte Commencement Ceremony?
The University is continuing to evaluate the implications of postponing the May 2020 Commencement ceremonies, and the options that students will have to participate in. Please continue to monitor your UNC Charlotte email address and the commencement website for more information.
Even though the commencement ceremonies were postponed to a later date beyond May, when will my degree be awarded as it will be reflected on my diploma?
Degrees will be awarded at the end of the term. Diplomas will be mailed to graduates six to eight weeks after the end of the semester to the diploma address provided on the application for degree. To change the address to which the diploma should be mailed, go online through my.uncc.edu, select the Personal Information menu, then select Update Address(es) and Phone(s), and then select "Diploma" for the "Type of Address."
If I don’t participate in the postponed ceremony, will I receive a refund from the commencement fee?
The UNC System has indicated that decisions about fee refunds, which are in their discretion, will be postponed until we are beyond the imminent issues facing us with mitigating the spread of the virus. Our priority continues to be ensuring the health and safety of our campus community and ensuring students continue their online and remote learning.
