Pacer Graduation Parade and Celebration


Frequently Asked Questions

It was a unique celebration in which graduates drove through campus, had their name announced, received their diploma cover, and were able to take an official picture with the spirit horse.
The university held a virtual ceremony on May 6 called Pacer Day. Because we could not safely gather for a face-to-face ceremony, the university held the Pacer Graduation Parade and Celebration on June 26th as a solution that we hope was safe as well as fun and memorable. There will be no further ceremonies for the class of 2020 after the Pacer Graduation Parade and Celebration.
Diplomas will be mailed to each graduate. Spring graduates will receive diplomas in the mail on or before August 12th. August graduates will receive their diplomas on or before November 15th.
Yes. The bookstore will be mailing diploma covers to graduates who could not attend the celebration.
