Physical tickets will not be issued. An RSVP link will be emailed to graduates. If you need to update the information that you provided with your RSVP, please call 724-773-3789 or email [email protected].
Those unable to attend are welcome to view the ceremony online. The link below is from our Spring 2023 ceremony. An updated link will be provided in December.
Graduates should wear business or business casual attire under their gown. Caps and gowns should be purchased from the Penn State Beaver Bookstore, 724-773-3650. Please hang them before wearing to remove wrinkles.
Students should verify their address in LionPATH and update if necessary. Diplomas will be mailed to the student's permanent address or LionPATH diploma mailing address approximately 4-6 weeks after the ceremony.
A Certified Electronic Diploma (CeDiploma) is also available to graduates of Spring 2020 and forward.
