RSVP Information

It’s time to RSVP to attend the MPA Commencement Ceremony.  This is the MPA-specific ceremony you attend if you are graduating with an MPA degree this year.


Key points about the RSVP:

  • An RSVP is required from each and every graduating student. There is an option to select “Not Attending Commencement” to let me know that you will not be attending.
  • Your families and friends do not need to RSVP because you will include your number of guests on the form. Tickets are not required.
  • An RSVP for the ceremony is not the same as a degree application.  If you are officially receiving the MPA degree this spring, please refer to the emails from your academic advisors with application instructions.  If you are receiving the MPA degree this summer, you will RSVP for the ceremony now, and wait to apply for the degree in the summer.

The University-wide ceremony will be the evening of Saturday, May 19 at the Tower. For more information, please see the University Commencement website.
