You’ve reached the finish line, but there are just a few more steps before you can collect your degree and bust through the doors of ECU!

This year’s Convocation features over 400 graduands expected to walk the stage and complete their academic journey at the Chan Centre on May 8!

Here’s how you can get prepared for the big day:

Regalia Extension till April 12!

The deadline to register for regalia has been extended to April 12. The regalia package includes a gown, hood, and cap for $36 or $20 for just the cap and tassel. At the end of the ceremony, you can keep your cap and tassel once you’ve scooped it from the air!

Regalia can be picked up from the Chan Centre on Convocation Day, May 8, once you sign in.

Register for Tickets - April 9-23!

Students are allowed two guests to attend the ceremony, and it’s best to register early due to capacity. Additional guests without tickets can line up early for the standby line, which opens at 12:30 P.M. at the Centre.

Get your Photos Taken by Artona

Get the props and friends together to take your graduation pictures with Artona, a local studio with over 40 years of experience with graduate photography. You can take your photos till May 30, so they’ve got you covered if you’d prefer to do it after the ceremony.
