The Eberly College will conduct a college-wide cording ceremony for undergraduate accounting, finance/LS, ISDS, management (general, international business, and human resource management), and marketing majors.
All college of business students will be corded with a special business cord by the dean of the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology. These cords will be paid for by the College, and students can then wear them to the university
Photos are permitted; however, no one will be permitted to come down on the gymnasium floor during the ceremony. Students and family members may take photos from their seats. Pictures may be taken before the ceremony. The stage will be available for pictures
after the ceremony.
Actual diplomas aren’t issued at college-level ceremonies or at the university ceremony. They will be mailed to your home address only after all grades have been posted and you have been cleared for graduation. Diploma covers will be issued during the
university-level ceremony. Students who are unable to attend the university ceremony can purchase a diploma cover at the bookstore.
In addition to the attending the business college cording ceremony, business majors should attend the afternoon university-level ceremony which will take place at 2:00 p.m. in the Kovalchik Convention and Athletic Complex. Arrival at the KCAC is
scheduled for 1:00 p.m., and this is conveniently right across the street from Eberly. This ceremony recognizes graduates from the Eberly College of Business, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Fine Arts, and the College
of Education and Communications. Visit the IUP Commencement website for more information about the university-level commencement ceremonies. Tickets are required for this ceremony.
Remember: Hundreds of family members have invested a significant amount of money, time, and concern for their children over these past academic years. This is supposed to be a special time for everyone!
