Notes to Graduating Class

1) Your cap and gown should have already been ordered.  If they were not, call the College Bookstore (610 861-1485) immediately.

2) In the event of rain, the limited seating capacity in Johnston Hall will necessitate admission by rain passes for Commencement. You will receive 4 passes with your cap and gown. If you will not need all 4 of your passes, please offer your extras to a fellow graduate who needs them. There will be no other way for graduates to obtain extra passes. TV monitors will be set up in the HUB. The HUB will be a more comfortable environment for those with young children or whose health would be negatively impacted by the close, crowded conditions in Johnston Hall. No passes are required if Commencement is held outdoors or for TV viewing in the HUB. The announcement as to whether or not the ceremony will be held indoors will be made on Saturday by 6:30 a.m. The information will be posted on our website or you may call 610 625-7995 or 610 861-1300.

3) Detailed instructions about where to go and what to do during Commencement will be distributed at rehearsal.  Those not able to attend rehearsal will get the instructions with their cap and gown. Please notify Dr. Shosh, PPHAC, room 327; 610 861-1482; if you will be unable to attend the rehearsal.

4) By faculty policy, only those students who are certified as having satisfied all requirements for the degree are eligible to receive a diploma.  If you have any questions in this regard, contact Dr. Shosh, PPHAC, room 327; 610 861-1482;

5) Final transcripts will be distributed during rehearsal to graduates who have satisfied all obligations to the College, including payment of any outstanding charges and return of library books. Unless instructed otherwise, transcripts not picked up at rehearsal will be mailed to the student's home address.
