Regalia

Although we cannot be together in person, if you would like to order personal regalia to celebrate your achievement, please visit Herff Jones to place your order with expedited shipping by Tuesday, June 1. Orders will deliver in 2 weeks time from the day they are entered. There is no guarantee they will arrive by Commencement date (May 22). Please note that student regalia is for personal use only and will not be featured in the online ceremony.

Graduation Checklist

Please review the Graduation Checklist to ensure that you do not miss any steps needed to complete your degree and receive your diploma.

Grad Pack

To help celebrate your achievement as a member of the class of 2021, we will mail you a Graduation Pack with items commemorating your time at Pratt. 

The Graduation Pack will include:

  • A printed Commencement/Awards Convocation program 

  • A 2021 Prattonia Yearbook 

  • Commemorative merchandise from Alumni Engagement

  • Colored Braids (Cords) signifying students graduating with Honor and Distinction, Academic Award recipients, Student Involvement Leadership recognition, First Generation, Athletics and Outstanding Service to Pratt Sustainability initiatives.

The Graduation Pack will be mailed in June. Confirm your mailing address at Student Self Service by May 24. If you can no longer access your Graduation Application, it is most likely because it has already been processed (this is the case for all summer and fall 2020 graduates and many spring 2021 graduates). If you have any difficulties, please reach out to us directly at commence@pratt.edu to confirm your mailing address. 

Celebrations and Awards

In addition to Pratt’s live online Commencement broadcast, each school will organize a virtual gathering for graduating students to celebrate their accomplishments, and present departmental awards. These events will occur in May, on a schedule determined by the schools. Students will learn more about these events from their schools in the weeks ahead.

As the semester progresses, we will continue to inform graduates and update the Commencement page with the information you need.
