2011 Commencement Information

Commencement Information

Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 Graduates: The Alumni Association is your home for Commencement 2011! Your official commencement ceremony will take place Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 2:30 pm at the UIC Forum, 725 W Roosevelt Rd., Chicago, IL 60608. Please watch your kentlaw.edu email for announcements and updates throughout the year. For more information, including FAQs, please visit the Commencement Portal online.

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 commencement@kentlaw.edu 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 commencement@kentlaw.edu 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.
