If at any time you change your mind regarding participation in the Commencement program, you must inform Student Administrative Services at (315)268-6451 or through e-mail at commencement@clarkson.edu promptly. Detailed seating of the graduates is an important factor in Commencement.

Please make sure to give the phonetic spelling of your name in MyCU so that the reader can properly pronounce your name.
