Will there be an Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation Spring 2021 Convocation ceremony?
Yes, Arizona State University and the Edson College will celebrate graduation ceremonies virtually and in-person.
The ceremony will include remarks by President Crow, Provost Searle, Edson College Dean Judith Karshmer and Associate Dean Kathy Kenny. College award winners will be honored and all graduate names will be read. Each graduate will have the opportunity to be recognized with an official slide that can be personalized with their photo and a personal message through the virtual graduation RSVP portal and these can be downloaded and shared on social media.
Do I need to register to participate in Edson’s virtual ceremony?
Yes, all ASU/Edson graduating students will register for the virtual graduation ceremony. This registration is separate from your registration for the in-person event. If you would like to include your personal message along with a photo, you will need to complete the virtual graduation RSVP. If you do not want to add personalized content, you will still have a slide in the virtual ceremony listing your name and degree.
How do I share the graduation ceremony with my family and friends?
The graduation ceremony will be available to view online on May 3. We encourage you to let all of your family and friends know and invite them to celebrate your accomplishments. The link will be sent at a later date to all graduates.
If I don’t want to participate in the virtual ceremony, do I need to apply to graduate?
Yes. You must apply to graduate regardless of ceremony participation. For information on how to apply, please visit Applying for Graduation. If you have already applied to graduate and paid your fee, you are all set! If students choose to not take part in any ceremony and their university academic requirements have been met, similar to prior years, they will receive their diplomas in the mail. (See below for more information on how to request your diploma cover.)
