It is expected that during the Spring 2023 semester all pending graduates will regularly check their Cumberland email for important commencement information.
Participants are required to wear their cap and gown during the commencement ceremony. Students may begin picking up their cap and gown beginning May 1 – 5th, 11:00 – 4:00 pm at the Dining Hall Veranda. Please pick up your academic regalia early to allow time for pressing or steaming to remove wrinkles. Undergraduate candidates should wear the tassel on the cap over the right temple. Masters and doctoral candidates should wear the tassel over the left temple.
Finalizing Your Cumberland Account:
If you have any pending financial aid i.e.; loans, scholarships, etc. these need to be received by Cumberland before your account is considered paid in full. It is your responsibility to make sure all financial aid has been received by the University.
An updated billing statement will be mailed to your billing address in mid-March if your account has a balance due. Please review your billing statement to verify that you have received all your financial aid and you do not have an outstanding balance.
If you owe a balance, please contact the business office to pay your account. If your balance is not paid in full, your diploma will be held and no transcripts will be released.
