For graduates needing to complete Commencement registration, please review the following:

  • If you have NOT applied for your 2024 Winter term degree, you will not be able to register.  Verify with the Registrar's office that your degree application has been processed and there are no holds on your account.
  • If you HAVE applied for your degree in the 2024 Winter term, you will receive instructions to your UKY email to complete your registration once registration opens on October 18. Subsequent emails will be sent to students who apply for their degree between October 18 and November 1.
  • You will be sent a link to your UKY email from MarchingOrder with the subject line: Register for your December 2024 Commencement Ceremony! In order to participate in Commencement, you must set your password via the email and complete the registration form.
  • Once logged in, keep in mind that only one (1) degree and one (1) major will show on your account. IF you are a dual degree/major, please confirm the degree in your profile is your main preference for the College with which you would like to walk. Certificate recipients are not recognized as part of Commencement.
  • After your form is submitted, you will receive a confirmation email. You will receive more information regarding day-of details in the days leading up to your ceremony.


Please contact Tyler Chapman at if you have not received a link via email to register for Commencement or need to make updates on your MarchingOrder profile.
