Out of Town Graduates
If you will not be in the Chicagoland area during Spring 2011 and are planning to participate in the Commencement ceremony, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for tickets, cap and gown, and other graduation information as soon as possible.
Please visit the Commencement Portal for other details about your Commencement ceremony.
Alumni Legacy Hooders
The Chicago-Kent tradition of Alumni Legacy Hooding allows a graduate to be hooded by an alumni relative during the ceremony. If you are an immediate relative of a Chicago-Kent alumnus/a and would like him/her to hood you at the ceremony, please email email@example.com for additional details.
Please note that this person must be both an alumnus of Chicago-Kent College of Law and an immediate relative of yours. Unfortunately there are no exceptions to this rule.
All Alumni Legacy Hooders will participate in the graduation processional and recessional and therefore will be sitting on the stage throughout the ceremony. Legacy Hooders do NOT need a graduation ticket. Legacy Hooders will wear caps and gowns and will pick up their regalia in the Faculty Robing Room on graduation day.
